Deltas in dam-retained lakes in the Carpathian part of the Vistula drainage basin
Summary: Delta growth rates in dam-retained lakes depend as much on the volume and granularity of the supplied sediment material, as on the lake's capacity to permanently retain the sediment. The shape of deltas in these water bodies is influenced by the valley floor morphology and also by relationships between seasonal fluctuations in the lake's water level and the annual river water and suspended and bedload supply pattern. The fastest growing deltas form in long and deep valley lakes featuring a slow water exchange cycle and large amounts of material, mainly suspended. Nearly all of the deltas considered in this study are of the low-energy type, as they mainly consist of sandy and dusty material. The role of gravel can only be expected to grow as the lakes are gradually filled in with deposits. There is a difference between deltas forming in lakes with high water level fluctuations and in lakes with a more stable water level with the former forming a longer, smoother longitudinal profile without a discrete boundary between the topset, foreset and the bottomset. Such a fuzzy boundary is caused by a cyclical shifting movement of the zone with the most intensive process of alternating deposition and erosion which occurs at the boundary of the permanently submerged and periodically exposed part of the delta.
