The old beds of the Yellow River can be found almost everywhere on the North China Plain. The cyclical process of the estuary development, namely, rerouting, extending, and rerouting again, is an epitome of the estuary development in the past but on a big scale now. The extension of the river mouth is the direct cause of aggradation of the river bed above the point of estuary pivot, arising from large sediment load consequent to soil erosion in the upland areas.
