Temporal relief deformation of the western inner continental shelf off the Nile delta, Egypt

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



Twenty three bathymetric profiles up to a depth of 28 m were surveyed along and across the western inner shelf off the Nile delta during 1919/22, 1976/77 and 1986. Comparison of these profiles establish that there are significant delta-wide changes in the patterns of erosion and accretion that correspond to sediment movement resulting from the prevailing dynamic factors affecting this area. This study evaluates temporal changes in bottom relief in order to: 1) detect and quantify the patterns of erosion and accretion, and 2) delineate the sediment transport pattern
