Abstract
Deltaic systems illustrate the complexity of coasts subject to marine and fluvial factors, resulting in highly dynamic domains that are suffering a deficit in sediment supply (regulation of the catchment basin, impounded coastal transport...). For the Ebre Delta (Spanish Mediterranean coast) the sediment flux arriving to the delta has been reduced by more than 90%, resulting in a deltaic system that is eroding horizontally and subsiding vertically at rates that produce significant land loss and ...
