Interannual and seasonal variation of the Huanghe ( Yellow River ) water discharge over the past 50 years : Connections to impacts from ENSO events and dams

  author={Houjie Wang and Zuosheng Yang and Yoshiki Saito and Jane P. Liu and Xiaoxia Sun},
The Huanghe, the second largest river in China, is now under great pressure as a water resource. Using datasets of river water discharge, water consumption and regional precipitation for the past 50 years, we elucidate some connections between decreasing water discharges, global El Niño/Southern Oscillation (ENSO) events and anthropogenic impacts in the drainage basin. Global ENSO events, which directly affected the regional precipitation in the river basin, resulted in approximately 51… CONTINUE READING
