Abstract

Islands in the Okavango Delta in northern Botswana have a large influence on water flow, evapotranspiration and salinity balance. it is concluded that island growth occurs in a radical pattern, driven primarily by local hydraulic gradients. Local gradients also cause displacement of the salt crusts. - (AJC)
