CaptionsSediments from the Apalachicola River delta complex form islands of sand ridges (cheniers). During high flow, the river delivers abundant sediment to the delta; as flow wanes the stream drops its load of coarser material around the channel mouth, to be redistributed primarily by waves. Variations in sediment supply and wave energy result in alternating bands of sand and mud. To see more detail of cheniers see St. Vincent Island, STS102-349-35.
