Abstract

This paper presents an approach for combining palaeoecological reconstructions of sedimentation history with physically based models of delta evolution to quantify the impact of historic land-use change on sediment delivery to an estuarine delta. The approach yields simulations of the morphology and evolution of a delta that developed as a result of human-induced high sediment supply and provides estimates of watershed sediment supply rates corresponding to observed delta sedimentation rates. Using additional field-derived relationships between elevation and plant associations, simple deterministic simulations of plant succession are also obtained
