Abstract: In August 1998, an international symposium on the world deltas was held in New Orleans, Louisiana, USA. This symposium attracted discussion about more than 25 deltas from around the world with emphasis placed on those that are most densely populated and impacted by humans. Keynote papers printed details about the physical, biological, engineering and socioeconomic aspects of six deltas including the Mississippi, Nile, Ganges Brahmaputra, Rhine Meuse, Changjiang and Po. The main purpose of this symposium was to inform scientists, engineers and decision makers about information that is currently available and to provide them a basis for working in such environments.

Key words: Deltas, Mississippi, Nile, Ganges Brahmaputra, Rhine Meuse, Changjiang, Po
