Introduction
• Evolution of river deltas: Role of natural phenomena on the development and collapse of river deltas based on reconstruction from marine/continental deposits • Morpho dynamics and sedimentation: rivers, deltas and supply-dominated coasts • Paleoceanography/Paleoclimatology: sources, transport, transformations, and climatic significance of clastic sediment in marine, fluvial, and other aquatic environments

We performed a detrital zircon (DZ) U-Pb geochronologic survey of the lower parts of the Danube River approaching its Danube delta- Black Sea sink, and a few large tributaries (Tisza, Jiu, Olt and Siret) originating in the nearby Carpathian Mountains. Samples are modern sediments. DZ age spectra reflect the geology and specifically the crustal age...

The Ayeyawady delta is the last Asian megadelta whose evolution has remained essentially unexplored so far. Unlike most other deltas across the world, the Ayeyawady has not yet been affected by dam construction, providing a unique view on largely natural deltaic processes benefiting from abundant sediment loads affected by tectonics and monsoon hyd...
Article
Fluvial export of organic carbon (OC) and burial in ocean sediments comprises an important carbon sink, but fluxes remain poorly constrained, particularly for specific organic components. Here OC and lipid biomarker contents and isotopic characteristics of suspended matter determined in depth profiles across an active channel close to the terminus...
Article
Understanding the transport history and fate of organic carbon (OC) within river systems is crucial in order to constrain the dynamics and significance of land–ocean interactions as a component of the global carbon cycle. Fluvial export and burial of terrestrial OC in marine sediments influences atmospheric CO2 over a range of timescales, while riv...

Article
Abundances and distributional changes of branched glycerol dialkyl glycerol tetraethers (brGDGTs) in fluvially influenced sediments are used in various paleoclimate studies to reconstruct variations in soil export, continental air temperature and soil pH in corresponding river basins. For accurate interpretation of these records, it is important to...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Organic carbon discharged by rivers and buried in continental margin sediments represents an important carbon sink and a valuable record of information on past environmental variations on the continents. In this context, it is crucial to understand the sources of carbon in river basins and the factors that influence biomarker signals during transpo...
Article

Over the last century humans have altered the export of fluvial materials leading to significant changes in morphology, chemistry, and biology of the coastal ocean. Here we present sedimentary, paleoenvironmental and paleogenetic evidence to show that the Black Sea, a nearly enclosed marine basin, was affected by land use long before the changes of...

Conference Paper
The Yukon fluvial-deltaic system is the largest sediment source surrounding the Bering Sea. Much of its sediment load is transferred to the Arctic Ocean by northward directed surface currents during sea level highstands such as today. Yet, during lowstands there is inferential evidence suggesting the Yukon flowed into the deep Bering Basin. It may...

The collapse of the Bronze Age Harappan, one of the earliest urban civilizations, remains an enigma. Urbanism flourished in the western region of the Indo-Gangetic Plain for approximately 600 y, but since approximately 3,900 y ago, the total settled area and settlement sizes declined, many sites were abandoned, and a significant shift in site numbe...

Sf. Gheorghe arm is one of the three main distributaries of the Danube, forming a delta in the Black Sea. The mouth of Sf. Gheorghe is among the few large European river mouths that have been free of direct large-scale engineering works. However, channel cutting in the Danube delta since the 19th Century as well as intensive damming of the Danube a...

Accelerated sea-level rise and anthropogenic stresses on large delta-forming rivers have led to intense pressure on deltas around the world. To address issues of maintenance and restoration natural deltaic processes need to be understood in detail. The evolution of Danube delta was studied by numerous researchers in the last century and a vast majo...
Article
A catastrophic flooding of the Black Sea basin was proposed to have occurred during its reconnection to the ocean in the early Holocene. Possible cultural consequences of the flood include the migration of Neolithic farmers from around the Black Sea towards central Europe as well as the creation of flood myths. Stratigraphic and paleo-geomorphologi...
Article
Deltas are particularly vulnerable coasts, affected by changes in both continental and coastal ocean processes. The currently accelerated loss of deltaic lands across the world is primarily due to fluvial sediment starvation following the pandemic construction of river dams and water diversions. However, the influence on deltas of human- or even cl...
Article

New radiocarbon and optical dates show that the Holocene Danube delta started to build out of a Black Sea embayment ˜5200 yr ago. Delta lobe development phases differ by as much as 5 k.y. from previously proposed ages. The new chronology allows for a better understanding of the Danube delta paleogeography, including the demise of Istria, the main a...
