Impact of tidal currents on delta-channel deepening, stratigraphic architecture, and sediment bypass beyond the shoreline

Deltas are sensitive indicators of coastal processes (e.g., waves and tides) and show dynamic changes in shoreline morphology, distributary channel network, and stratigraphic architecture in response to coastal forcing. Numerical modeling has long been used to show delta evolution associated with a single dominant coastal process, but rarely to examine the sensitivity of deltas to mixed processes.
