Average annual runoff and loads reaching the sea from the rivers in littoral areas of China are estimated at 1 800 km and 2 000 million tons respectively accounting for 4.6 % and 11.5 % of world total, while the content of soluble substance is about the same as world average. Most discharge enters the Donghai, followed by Nanhai and the Pacific. Variations in runoff is affected by human activities besides natural precipitation. Since the last decade runoff discharged into Donghai decreased but the amount of load increased. (TNC).
