There are so many in this world. One of them is at the mouth of the Mississippi it is shaped like a bird’s foot .I am going to give you a clue it starts with a ‘D’. It’s a Delta!!!! Delta is formed by deposition.
A delta is an area of land shaped like a triangle where a river deposits sediment such as mud, sand and pebbles as the river enters the sea.
When a river flows to the sea, it brings with it a lot of sand and silt that it has picked up on its journey. Where a river ends and it flows, in the sea it is called “Rivers Mouth.”This is where the river flows to another river, lake or sea. It suddenly starts flowing slow. It is longer capable of carrying its loads that’s what they call sediments in a river. Some people live on deltas .The soil is very good for farming.
Deltas are found in the end of huge rivers like the Mississippi River or the Nile River for example.
What Will Happen in The Future?
I think what will happen in the future is the Nile River delta will become wider and the Mississippi delta will become longer because after a long time the water will push and the delta will become bigger or wider .
The Most Famous Ones
The most famous ones are the Nile River delta and the Mississippi River delta, but the most famous one from both is the Mississippi delta because it’s shaped like a bird’s foot and the other deltas don’t have shapes.
Delta is a very interesting subject to learn about before I thought it was boring, but at the end it’s actually fun. I hope you like deltas. Now you learned about them.
