Abstract

Abstract Hangzhou Bay is situated immediately south of the mouth of Changjiang, the fourth largest river in the world in both water and sediment discharge. Synoptic and anchor-station observations of hydrography and suspended sediment during July 1981, December 1982, and December 1983 have been used to describe the water and sediment discharge from Changjiang into Hangzhou Bay. A secondary Changjiang river plume is found to play an important role in both the circulation and sediment transport inside the bay. The plume front serves as a guide for sediment transport and it may be related to the rapid accretion at the south shore of Hangzhou Bay.
