"The late Quaternary Niger delta in the Gulf of Guinea is a large, arcuate 'classical' delta associated with marginal estuary and barrier island-lagoon complexes. The late Quaternary deltaic lens (minimum volume 900 cubic kilometers) is the latest accretion within the Nigerian Coastal Plain geosyncline. Sediment originating in a vast and geologically complex hinterland is dispersed through the delta by river, tidal, wave, and ocean currents."
