Description :
Fluvial sedimentation can be classified as one of the 3 types in terms of different morphological units, i.e., vertical overbank deposition, vertical deposition on the riverbed and lateral deposition on the riverbank. With the example of the lower Yellow River, the 3 types of sedimentation have been studied in relation to channel adjustment, emphasizing the changes under the conditions of low discharge and seasonal desiccations since 1986.
