Abstract

Slackwater deposits have been used as evidence for the magnitude and frequency of palaeofloods which occurred prior to gauged and historical data sets, e.g., Holocene extreme flood reconstruction in North America and Australia. The slackwater deposits from Xiaolangdi Reach of the Yellow River have been identified and related to floods according to both eyewitness accounts and the analysis of sediments. The technique successfully delineated the peak flood level and estimated a discharge of the 1994 AD flood in the Yellow River. The prediction of Holocene large magnitude floods according to the sedimentary records will also be discussed
