 DELTA INITIATION AND HOLOCENE SEA-LEVEL CHANGE: EXAMPLE FROM THE SONG HONG (RED RIVER) DELTA, VIETNAM   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Delta initiation and subsequent delta growth were investigated by using radiocarbon-dated borehole cores from the Song Hong (Red River) delta, Vietnam.
The results of this study are similar to those for other major delta systems, such as the Changjiang and the Ganges-Brahmaputra deltas, despite large differences in sediment discharge, tectonics, basin size, and coastal environment.
This implies that the postglacial sea-level rise and the change in the rise rate markedly influenced the evolution of depositional systems at river mouths.
