 WDN Literature References: River Deltas and Sea Level Rise
The accelerated growth of the Changjiang River delta since 2,000 BP was formerly attributed to the intensified human activity in the drainage basin.
Meanwhile, most of the sediment from the river mouth was trapped by the relatively deep-water sedimentary basin to build the underwater delta and a new coast profile, which paved the way for the rapid seaward growth of deltaic land after 2,000 BP.
Rivers are the main source of terrigenous sediment delivered to continental margins and thus exert a major control on coastal evolution and sequence development.

The Ise Grand Shrines-- Tied historically to the imperial family and considered the most venerable Shinto shrines in the nation, the Ise Grand Shrines (Ise Jingu) consist of the Outer Shrine and the Inner Shrine, plus more than 100 minor shrines spread through a dense forest of Japanese cypress.
