Observation of current changes in the Yellow River Delta

The Yellow River is undergoing rapid natural and especially human induced changes. During the field campaign in October 2013 a special focus was on identification of areas currently undergoing significant changes, such as preparation of land for new built up areas, construction of aquaculture and dykes, creation of new oil or gas pumps and extensive building of new houses. The photos below show some examples of current human activities in the Yellow River Delta area observed during the field campaign in October 2013.
