    The event in the picture above is a process that occurred at the Sub Aerial Deposition Coast, which is the process of forming a delta. Delta is a fluviomarin geomorphological phenomenon in the form of deposition of terrestrial sediment material that is transported by streams and deposited along river mouths that enter lakes or the sea. Delta occurs when the flow velocity in the estuary is minimal, the amount of material transported is large but not disturbed by wave activity, the water in the estuary is calm and the river bed is sloping, and there is also no tectonic and volcanic disturbance.  Delta forming factors include the characteristics of the…
