Based on data from 35 stations on the tributaries of the Yellow River, annual specific sediment yield in 8 grain size fractions has been related to basin-averaged annual sand-dust storm days and annual precipitation to reveal the influence of eolian and fluvial processes on specific sediment yield in different grain size fractions. The period from which the data were used is from 1950 to 1970 as basin-wide erosion and sediment control measures have not yet been practiced during this period, and human impact on sediment producing and transporting processes was relatively small
