Abstract

This paper addresses the recent (1970s-1990s) processes of river mouth bar formation riverbed aggradation and distributary migration in the Huanghe River mouth area, in the light of station-based monitoring, field measurements and remote sensing interpretation. The results show that the morphological changes of the river mouth bar have been closely associated with the largely reduced fluvial discharge and sediment load. Landform development such as bar progradation occurred in 2 phases, before and after 1989, which correspond to faster and lower bar growth rates, respectively. Furthermore, the history of river mouth bar formation reflects human impacts
