Abstract

The South China Sea offers a special research opportunity for Earth scientists because of its location and its well-preserved terrigenous sediments (Wang and Li, 2009). As the largest one of the marginal seas separating Asia from the Pacific, the South China Sea functions as a natural laboratory for study of land-sea interactions, because of its unique source-to-sink record of fluvial sediments. The South China Sea receives more than 600 million tons of detrital sediments annually from numerous rivers, including world’s largest rivers, such as the Pearl, the Red, and the Mekong (Fig. 1).
