Short summary
The Selenga River is the largest tributary of Baikal Lake, it's delta covers around 600 km2. Suspended sediment concentrations (SSC) in the Selenga river delta were modelled based on LandSat images data. The variability in suspended sediment retention during the period 1989 to 2015 was calculated. The results suggest that SSC storage in the delta is observed during high discharges, whereas export increases under lower flow conditions. The changes in seasonal patterns are explained by wetland.
