Abstract

An index of sediment transferring function (Fs) is applied in this study to reveal the temporal variation in the downstream sediment transfer of the Lower Yellow River. It is found that in the past 50 years, this sediment transferring function index showed a decreasing trend. The results show that the decreasing trend of Fs is basically synchronic with the decreasing trends in the area-averaged annual precipitation in the upper and middle drainage basin and in the index of reservoir regulation. Thus, the changing drainage basin factors have resulted in the decrease in the sediment transferring function of the Lower Yellow River
