ADB Yellow River (A3) - Project Sheet
The Yellow River is flowing from West to East throughout the Northern China, with a total length of 5,464 km, a vertical drop of 4,830 m and a catchment area of 752,000 km2. The predominant climate is extreme continental with a drought climate to the North and humid climate to the southeast of the basin, with rainy summers and dry and cold winters. There is a seasonal rainfall alternation between both watersheds, fact that provides this area with monthly regularity, but it is subject to hard hydrous unbalances from year to year, that only allow considering its medium contribution of 52 km3/year, as simple statistic reference.
