AbstractRiver sediment yield has been widely used as a proxy indicator for assessing surface erosion rate within the catchment or land degradation. This paper has investigated a time-series record of sediment yields of the Yellow River back to the year of 1912. The relationship of sediment yield fluctuation to precipitation and major human activity events was analyzed. Results show that large-scale human activities such as the Second World War and the Chinese Culture Revolution greatly accelerated the soil erosion on the Loess Plateau. However, dam buildings in the 1970s, implementation of soil conservation in the 1980s and the runoff failure in the Yellow River in the 1990s caused substantial decrease of its sediment yield.
