Title: Connectivity as a tool to investigate hydro-geomorphic systems: A river delta case study.
Connectivity plays a crucial role in natural and engineered systems, driving and resulting from various processes. For example, sediment fluxes shape the landscape, creating preferential paths for water and sediment transport, ultimately leading to channelized flows that affect the system’s response to changing forcings. Research in geomorphic systems has focused on understanding the emergent connectivity structures and their impact on system dynamics. To this end, network theory provides a suitable mathematical framework for quantitatively characterizing connectivity patterns. In this presentation, I will use river deltas as a case study to demonstrate how an integrated approach, combining network theory, remote sensing, and modeling tools, can enhance our understanding of the structure and dynamics of geomorphic systems. Specifically, I will showcase how analyzing river delta channel networks can help solve the inverse problem of inferring process from form, classify and compare river deltas, and predict their dynamic response to different forcing scenarios.
