Statement: Simulation of fluvial incision in the shelf

Abstract: Simulation of fluvial incision in the shelf during a glacial-interglacial sea level cycle. This simulation represents the East Coast of the US, i.e. close to Chesapeak Bay and Delaware Bay. During lowstand, at glacial maximum the entire shelf is actively incised and reworked by fluvial systems.


Fluvial coastal reworking as a result of sea level change in glacial-interglacial time periods.
