The timing of the development of strath terraces with respect to climatic variability remains equivocal. Previous studies attribute strath-terrace formation to glacial or inter-glacial climates or to variations in sediment and water fluxes that cause lateral erosion followed by vertical incision. A chronology of strath-terrace formation spanning ϳ900 k.y.(More)
Fifty-six riverbed surface sediment (RSS) samples were collected along the Ningxia-Inner Mongolian reaches of the Yellow River (NIMYR). These samples were analyzed to determine their heavy metal concentrations (Co, Cr, Ni, Cu, V and Zn), grain sizes, sediment sources and the causes of their heavy metal contamination. The cumulative distribution functions of(More)
One hundred and eleven riverbed surface sediment (RSS) samples were collected to determine the heavy metal concentration throughout the Inner Mongolia reach of the Yellow River (IMYR), which has been subjected to rapid economic and industrial development over the past several decades. Comprehensive analysis of heavy metal contamination, including the(More)
Surface sediment samples concurrently collected in the catchment of the Ningxia-Inner Mongolian reach of Yellow River (NIMYR) were analyzed to determine the phosphorus and correlated physiochemical properties of sediments. Samples were obtained from three main areas: the riverbed surface sediment (RSS), the floodplain surface sediment (FSS) and the desert(More)
