Abstract

Different methods have been used to compare the Changjiang River sediment with the Yellow River sediment to get the effective indicators for distinguishing between the two sediments. The differences in source area and climatic zone of the two sediments result in the differences in their chemical element and mineral compositions, but it is quite difficult to use these differences to discriminate the material sources in the shelf sea area. Based on the synthetic analysis results of the two sediment data, it is suggested to use several indicators to discriminate the material sources of the sediments in the East China Sea shelf area.
