The aim of this thesis is to explore deltaic and estuarine cities, the nexus between the natural and built environment, and how concepts of delta urbanism can be applied to study these complex deltaic systems. Specifically, the aim of this thesis is to study the estuarine city of Savannah, Georgia through concepts of delta urbanism and to contribute to the comparative analysis recently proposed in delta urbanism literature. However, there has been little research on the concepts and frameworks found in delta urbanism literature. This thesis intends to research, compile, and outline concepts and frameworks found within delta urbanism literature, and then apply those concepts and frameworks to study the estuarine city of Savannah, Georgia. Through literature review, mapping, and historical analysis, the various failures, successes, similarities, and differences between urbanized deltas can be highlighted. This thesis intends to contribute to this discussion.
