I have no idea what a Delta is. There's one in the Nile. Regular annual flooding? δ

By placing one horizontal line at the bottom, then two diagonal lines upwards meeting each other to form an isosceles triangle.

A delta forms from a deposition of sediment
(Original post by the bear)
there is like mud & stuff which makes a D shape.
deposition of sediment occurs at an estuary or where river meets an ocean or a sea. This is because the water isn't flowing as fast and so it can't carry the sediments which are therefore deposited.

A delta forms when the river deposits sediment faster than it can remove it

When a river loses its energy as it reaches the ocean and is therefore no longer able to keep its sediment load in suspension. However, the strength of the river (and sediment load) has to be high enough (greater than tidal and/or wave forces) to allow the sediment to build up into the ocean, otherwise some other formation such as an estuary will form.

True
17. True.
It's when the water can't get through the ground and... well runs off. That transfers it somewhere else.
