Abstract
    The Wenzhou Bay mudflat has been formed during the past 6,000 years when sea level has stood approximately at the present level. The mud is supplied from the Changjiang river by the Jiang-Zhe coastal current. Local river supply is relatively small. The mudflat is built up by the flood and by waves, both coming from the SE. Mud deposition is related to the current velocity and the depth of submergence. Erosion takes place during storms, particularly typhoons. On average the mudflats grow ca. 10 m per year seawards.
