Abstract
    More than 90% of the Huanghe sediment load is deposited in the lower reaches of the river and within the shallow estuarine area. Additional sedimentation occurs in the southern part of Bohai so that the actual flux of sediment to the Yellow Sea (Huanghai) is very limited. We show that this flux takes place via a nepheloid layer across the Bohai Sea strait, transporting ~6.109 kg·y-1, i.e. less than 1% of the Huanghe sediment discharge.
