Changes in Fluvial Systems, River Sediments and Deltas

Fluvial systems provide a basin from which to study the impact of human alterations of Earth. In a special session of the Anthropocene Working Group, geologist and oceanographer James Syvitski maps how the human modification of the world’s hydrological system continues to accelerate, how deltas are starved of sediment due to dam building, and how wetlands are lost and coasts retreat.
This presentation was given during the Human Impacts and Their Consequences. A Forum on the Occasion of the First Meeting of the Anthropocene Working Group , which was part of the The Anthropocene Project. A Report event at HKW, Berlin, October 17, 2014.
