Before

The 5464 km-long Yellow River originates in the Bayankala Mountains of the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, China (Long and Chien, 1986; Huang et al., 1992). The river is regard as the second the second largest river of the world in terms of sediment load with its average annual sediment load of 1.08 Gt yr− 1 (Milliman and Meade, 1983). At present, scientists have ascertained that the coarse sediment deposited in the lower reach of the Yellow River mainly resulted by water erosion in Loess plateau (Chien et al., 1980; Tang, 1991). And there are also some research pay attentions to the link between water and wind processes in the middle Yellow River Basin (Xu, 1998, 1999). The upper reaches of the Yellow River drain the northeastern part of the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau at above 3000-4000 m across the Qinghai-Tibet and Loess plateaus, and through desert regions (Fig.1).
