Re: Nuweiba Beach A Delta
From message 80:


View Larger Map

If you look you can see a city and roads and such sitting right in the middle of what Buz calls a delta.

Not unlike what we refer to as "New Orleans"?

And the 'river' if you look is actually a frikken highway.

Running up what appears to be a river valley (look at the "Ter" view).

The lightest area appears to be modern river flood plain confined by levees.

I'd buy it as being a delta.

Edited by Minnemooseus, : Add the "Ter" part.

Re: Nuweiba Beach A Delta

Nuweiba lies on a large flood plain measuring about 40 km2 (15 sq mi),sandwiched between the Sinai mountains and the Gulf of Aqaba...

And what would you call a river flood plain located where the river flows into the sea? I'd call it a delta.

quote:
Delta - A large, roughly triangular body of sediment deposited at the mouth of a river.

There are no signs I can see of silt or silt build up...

Zoom in more.
