The Delta-X mission seeks to answer this science question: What are the hydrological and ecological processes responsible for the resilience and vulnerability of river deltas to Relative Sea Level Rise (RSLR), and what are their relative contributions to soil elevation?

The mission’s objectives are to evaluate the roles of:
1. Vegetation on soil accretion rates
2. Channel-network density and deltaic island size on soil accretion rates
