A CREVASSE SPLAY INDUCED AVULSION ON THE CEYHAN DELTA

Abstract

Author(s): Murat ATAOL

As a result of flood occurred on the delta of Ceyhan River in 1935, a crevasse splay of 25.8 km2 (7.5 km wide, 4.4 km long) occurred and Ceyhan River formed a new channel of 9.1 km on this new splay directing the water at the southern edge of the delta. This crevasse splay converted 17.7 km2 (57.3% of the whole lake) of Lake Akyayan of 30.9 km2 into land. The development of crevasse splay finalized substantially until 1970s and Ceyhan River started to discharge into the Mediterranean Sea at the southern edge of the delta via one single channel on the splay.
