Development of the Laitaure delta, Swedish Lappland. A study of growth, distributary forms and processes

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



Deltaic processes were studied on the Laitaure delta. Specific aims were to: analyse forms and processes in distrbutaries with regard to hydraulic geometry reationships; investigate the distribution of water into different distributaries, analyse the morphological development of the delta; and quantify the advance of the delta front. Further, a brief study was made of the bottom sediments in Lake Laitaure. X-ray radiographs of sediment cores sampled in different parts of Laitaure, reveal annually laminated deposits, for which the variations in temporal and spatial sedimentation rates were investigated
