Land subsidence as a result of sediment consolidation in the Yellow River delta


Land subsidence as a result of sediment consolidation in the Yellow River delta



Journal of Coastal Research 23(1): 173-181



ISSN/ISBN: 0749-0208

DOI: 10.2112/39951.1

Land subsidence due to consolidation of sediment was analysed in the Yellow River delta, using lithological data of deposits, equations of soil mechanics, and empirical relations. Subsidence in an abandoned deltaic lobe largely results from the consolidation of deltaic clay layers accumulated in the prodelta, the bays, and marine clay layers underlying the delta. The prodelta and marine clay layers have a total thickness of approximately 14 m.
