The evolution of the modern Luanhe River delta, north China

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



In 1915, the Luanhe River changed course to its present position, and has since developed a typical fan-shaped delta under fluvial-wave interaction. Owing to the water conservancy projects constructed in the catchment, the sand load that the Luanhe River takes into the sea has decreased sharply since 1980. Hence, the evolution of the Luanhe River Delta can be divided into two phases : the delta constructing phase between 1915 and 1979, and the para-abandoned phase after 1979. In the different phases, the delta characteristics are not alike, the delta has a different geometric pattern
