The Mahakam Delta, located on the east coast of Kalimantan, Indonesia, is an active delta system which has formed in humid tropical environment under condition of relatively high tides, low wave-energy, and large fluvial input. Tidal processes control the sediment distribution patterns in the deltamouth and are responsible for the flaring estuarine-type inlets and numerous tidal flats.
