A great deal of tan sediments spill from the Huangpu River, a tributary of the Yangtze, into the East China Sea near Shanghai on the Yangtze River Delta.

Sediments are also present, though in a lesser quantity, along the shores of the Shandong Peninsula (above center) and the Bohai Sea.

Inland, near the delta, Lake Tai appears greenish tan. Lake Tai, literally “Grand Lake”, is on the Yangtze Delta Plain, on the border of the Jiangsu and Zhejiang provinces.
