Predictions of a delta's morphology, facies, and stratigraphy are typically derived from its relative wave, tide, and river energies, with sediment type playing a lesser role. Here we test the hypothesis that, all other factors being equal, the topse... Read More about Grain-size controls on the morphology and internal geometry of river-dominated deltas.
