Inertia-dominated deltas are considered to be an uncommon dominance for deltas. They are associated with high flow velocities and large amounts of turbulence. As shown in the figure above, sediments are deposited close to the main flow of the channel as it enters the basin. In other words, the deposition of sediments in inertia dominated deltas does not have a large lateral component.
