STS079-784-035 Yellow River Mouth, China September 1996 Considered to be one of the most silt-laden rivers in the world, the mouth of the Yellow River can be seen in this southwest-looking view. The Yellow River discharges over one billon tons of sediment each year into the Gulf of Bohai (bottom portion of the image). The delta of the Yellow River is being extended into the gulf steadily at a rate of one mile (1.6 km) a year, adding roughly 14 sq. miles (40 sq. km) of land in the process. The...
