Evolution of Elongated Deltas

Delta progradation driven by an advancing sediment source was modeled using the Morphodynamics model in Prof. Gary Parker's E-book

Courses

Morphodynamics and Quantitative Stratigraphy (GEO 391)

The goal of this course is for students to develop their own numerical tools to quantitatively understand sediment transport and stratigraphic development in sedimentary basins. The focus of this class ranges from applications of the principles in fluid mechanics, sediment transport, and depositional mechanics to one-dimensional and quasi-two dimensional numerical modeling of sediment morphodynamics in various depositional settings such as a) river deltas, b) carbonate platforms, and c) submarine fans. Through this course, students will develop their own morphodynamic model as a research tool to understand their own data from the field and/or laboratory experiments.
