INTRODUCTION

This paper summarises the information which was displayed at the poster session of the Annual Conference of the Geological Society of Malaysia in Kuching (May 4th & 5th, 1991).

The synoptical effect of remote sensing imagery allows a new vision of active environments of deposition and is now successively applied to the study of modern deltas. Two recent satellite pictures of the Baram River have been analysed in order to provide a better understanding of the recent evolution of a tropical delta.
