Description:

Features of Channel Margins in the Okavango Delta.

Summary / Notes:

Joint sedimentological-botanical studies have been initiated in the perennial swamps of the Okavango Delta-fan, Botswana. It has been recognized that a knowledge of the interface of the active channel and the adjacent swamp vegetation is crucial in the understanding of the dynamics of the Delta. This interface was studied in both active channels and abandoned channel counterparts. Hydrology.
