- Casey guessed the next would be delta: phonetic alphabet
- Other symbols use in chemistry include the Greek letter delta to denote a change in energy levels and an arrow to indicate the direction a reaction proceeds in.
- Apparently they don't teach you anything useful, just epsilons and deltas.
- It should be noted that the scaled necrosis depth, d / delta, also depends on the irradiation geometry and the incident light dose.
- Innumerable lagoons, lakes, canals, estuaries and the deltas of 44 rivers make up the 900 km of backwater network of the State.
- Here in northern Idaho, near where the deluge began, I survey the rounded mountains and river deltas, trying to imagine the force of such a catastrophe.
- The Teshekpuk area, a network of wet meadows, river deltas, coastal lagoons and small ponds, is the prime calving grounds for a 25,000-strong caribou herd.
- But those levees denied the delta replenishing river sediment, just as oil prospectors began to dredge coastal wetlands.
- The minerals are deposited in lakes, deltas and meander further downstream, where they build up and form sedimentary rocks such as calcite, selenite, pyrite and dolomite.
- As the rate of rising sea level gradually slowed, rivers began to build deltas from retreating shorelines into the encroaching seas.
- These lead down to what appears to be a shoreline with river deltas and sand bars.
- It and many other old zircons come from metamorphosed sediments deposited in river deltas some 3 billion years ago in what is now southwestern Australia.
- Irrigated rice agriculture is also practiced in numerous smaller river deltas and plains along the country's coast.
- Most Pamiri villages exist at the triangle of a river delta.
- The flows lead down to a shoreline which scientists think has river deltas and sandbars, all familiar geographical features from home.
- In time, as the Ecca Sea filled with sediment and the deltas prograded basinward, large tracts of river channels and floodplains emerged.
- In Bangladesh, settlement of populations in high risk areas such as floodplains and river deltas increases vulnerability.
- You can't save beaches and wetlands with seawalls, and you can't wall off river deltas and floodplains that contain much of the world's most productive agricultural land.
- Discriminating between deposits of tidally influenced deltas and tide-dominated coastal mud flats in the rock record is often difficult.
- They carry silt from the Mississippi River that replenishes the delta and keeps the coastland above the water line, creating a gradual buffer from the sea.
- Water flow in the rivers decreased when the region's climate changed about 5,000 years ago and wind began to winnow the river delta's dried sediments.
- Long and narrow it stretches east to west along the Gambia River and the capital, Banjul, lies on an island in the river delta.
- Erpetoichthys calabaricus is distributed solely in tropical Africa, where it occupies habitats ranging from flowing rivers to flood plains and internal river deltas.
- The forests and estuaries of the delta also benefited from huge floods released into the river from behind dams during the El Niño years of the 1980s and 1990s.
