Some sediments are present along the west coast of the Korean Peninsula (lower right quadrant), mainly by South Korea, and along the coast of the Bohai Sea (lower left edge) and Shandong Peninsula (bottom left) in northeast China.

The sediments appear most concentrated in Liaodong Bay, one of the three bays forming the Bohai Sea. It borders Hebei province and Tianjin Municipality. Most of these sediments are flowing forth from the Daliao River, which has its estuary on the shores of the bay.
