We investigate the morphological responses of the Hangzhou Bay, China, located immediately south of the Changjiang Estuary, to the drastic reduction of the sediment load from the Changjiang River and the large-scale coastal embankment schemes over past decades. The spatial patterns of deposition and erosion, sediment volume changes, and the...

We investigate the evolution of a large-scale sand body, a unique type of sandbars in a convergent estuary. Specifically, we analyze and simulate the sand deposition system (defined as an inside bar) in the Qiantang Estuary (QE) in China. The deposit is 130 km long and up to 10 m thick, and is characterized by a dextral morphology in the lower...

The research objective is to investigate the variations of sediment transport in outer Changjiang Estuary and adjacent Hangzhou Bay, induced by the decline of Changjiang River sediment discharge and massive land reclamation in the last three decades. A synchronous hydrographic survey was conducted along two transects (at the bay-mouth and outer...
