A Study on the Source and Quantity of Sediment at the Yangtze River Estuary

Lin Chengkun(Department of Geography, Nanjing University)  
The Yangtze River Estuary is an estuary with large amount of runoff and strong tide. The average discharge of the Yangtze River is only 29,400 m3/s, while the average discharge of flood tide may get to 227,400 m3/s. The amount of sediment is about 483 million tons/yr. The dynamic interaction of these two strong forces leads to form the Yangtze River Estuary. According to the regional geological and geomorphological characteristics and their effects on heavy minerals of sediment, the source of the sediment at the Yangtze River Estuary can be considered as coming from 3 supplying regions, namely, the Yangtze River upstream(x1),the abandoned delta of the Yellow River at the north of Jiangsu Province (x2) and the Hangzhou Bay (x3). The converging region is the Yangtze River Estuary (y). Sampling stations are set up in the supplying regions and the converging region. According to the statistics of heavy minerals of nearly 20,000 grains of sediment collected during geological and geomorphological investigations, the author holds that heavy mineralogical characters of sediment of the Yangtze River Estuary are governed by the geological and geomorphological conditions of the watershed. According to the principle of equilibrium of sediment load, equations of the heavy mineralogical classification are presented.By means of Least Squares Method, a normal equation for calculating the converging percentages from all the supplying regions is given below:Where are the coefficients related toheavy minerals. The result shows that 96.1% of the sediment comes from the Yangtze River upstream, 7.0% from the abandoned delta of the Yellow River and-3.1% from the Hangzhou Bay.When the converging percentage of sediment from the Yangtze River upstream is known, and the total amount of sediment at Datong station is also known as 483 million tons per year, the amount of sediment at the Yangtze River Estuary (d0.01mm) is computed, which is 359 million tons per year. This value agrees quite well with the value of 349.4 million tons per year calculated from the topographic maps of 1915 and 1963 of the Yangtze River Estuary.
