Example sentence: "They/these were subjected to intensive use during geomorphological evolution."

I'm talking about "deltas". Can I use "they" here?

    Inanimate objects are third person. They is a third-person plural pronoun, so in that case it is totally correct. – Archa Jul 22 '16 at 12:39

Yes. The word "They" can be used to reference inanimate objects.

Example:

I have six apples. They are on the kitchen counter.
