Abstract

Analyses of sediments, planation surfaces and topography in the lower Pearl River system, indicates that distribution of most of the larger rivers is pre-Oligocene. Late Mesozoic granite exposures are typically located in cores of anticlines implying that both were coeval. These structures were developed at shallow depths and resulted in the formation of topographic highs that controlled the ancient drainage pattern of the present Lower Pearl River system. Uplift of the SE China mainland during the Oligocene caused incision of much of the river system preserving the late Cretaceous drainage pattern
