Description :
The aim of this paper is to compare and contrast available geomorphological, cartographic, satellite, archaeological and historical data, in order to locate precisely and date former river channels and former deltaic mouths. The AA. also present a comprehensive dynamic geomorphological account of the development of the deltas since the 7th century BC. From the end of the 16th century, an acceleration of the processes of changes in the river courses and progression of the deltas can be detected, affecting, apparently, mainly the Seman. The construction of dams and of structures that stabilize the channels also contributed to accelerating coastal erosion since 1968.
