Thick Outflow of Sediments from Yangtze and Han Rivers38.9N 120.0E
In China, the greatest outflow is coming from the Yangtze River. These sediments spill into the East China Sea near Shanghai on the Yangtze River Delta, appearing concentrated and brown near the coast and spreading outwards in a still thick, greenish plume.
Across the sea by Korea, the discharge of sediments is strongest from the Han River in South Korea. The Han is a major river, formed by the confluence of the Namhan River (South Han River) and the Bukhan River (North Han River). The Han flows through Seoul and then merges with the Imjin River shortly before it flows into the Yellow Sea.
