Sediment compaction rates and subsidence in deltaic plains ...

ABSTRACT Natural sediment compaction in deltaic plains influences subsidence rates and the evolution of deltaic morphology. Determining compaction rates requires detailed knowledge of subsurface geotechnical properties and depositional history, neither of which is often readily available. To overcome this lack of knowledge, we numerically forward model the incremental sedimentation and ...

During the Holocene, avulsion was an important process, resulting in frequent shifts of areas of clastic sedimentation. Palaeogeographic evolution and avulsion history of the Rhine-Meuse delta are governed by complex interactions among several factors. These are: (1) Location and shape of the Late Weichselian palaeovalley.

Basal peat samples come from strata that directly overlie sandy aeolian sediments, minimizing compaction effects in the curves. The basal peats sampled for these reconstructions are swamp peat and fen-edge peat (Alnus peat, that is, alder peat), which form approximately at or slightly below the annual mean groundwater table (Charman, 2002).

In conceptual model 1, differential peat compaction, leading to river avulsion, is paced during increasing eccentricity at times of minimum precession. High seasonal contrast leads to drying and oxidation, hence compaction, of the peat during the dry season, and enhanced discharges lead to crevasse splaying during the wet season.

The contribution of peat compaction to total basin ...

ABSTRACT Provision of accommodation space for aggradation in Holocene deltaic basins is usually ascribed to eustatic sea‐level rise and/or land subsidence due to isostasy, tectonics or sediment compaction. Whereas many Holocene deltas contain peat, the relative contribution of peat compaction to total subsidence has not yet been quantified from field data covering an entire delta.
