Beautiful River Deltas Photographed From Above
Beautiful river deltas flow across our planet, largely going unnoticed both
for the incredibly complexity and the benefits they have for over 500 million
people around the world. They play the important role of distributing sediment
from rivers to the shorelines.
It is estimated that 1 out of 15 of the world’s population lives and works on
one of 40 major deltas across the globe. When viewed from space their true scale
is revealed and they appear like the major arteries and blood vessels of earth.
