Abstract

This paper focuses on the coastal plain, including three younger deltas, i.e. the delta near Tiajin, the modern delta, and the abandoned delta. In the first two deltas, land subsidence, both natural and man-induced, is serious, and local sea-level rise is mainly a result of land subsidence. The major direct impacts of relative sea-level rise on the Yellow River Delta are submergence and salinity increase
