Maps showing changes in bathymetry of the Yellow River Delta through time. Note changes in shallowest (red) areas surrounding the river mouth within the circle. The old Yellow River course that existed during 1976−1996 was abandoned and a modern river course was established since 1996 (Wang et al. 2015, their figure 1). Note a slight protrusion to the north in red area (arrow) for the year 1996 caused by the change in river course (see Fig. 2e). Images from Wang et al. (2017), with permission from Elsevier.
