  • Braided rivers in the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau: distribution and functioning

    Qinghai-Tibet Plateau (QTP), mostly located in western China, is the world’s highest plateau. Many river systems are derived from the QTP and become the source areas of major large rivers in east and south Asia (e.g., Yellow River, Yangtze River, Mekong River, Salween River, and Brahmaputra River). Braided rivers constitute a fundamental type of these river systems and are widely distributed in the QTP. In this talk, I will describe these braided rivers in terms of their associated five watersheds along the northeastern belt of the QTP. Physiographic settings of example sites in each watershed will be introduced, together with illustration of various pictures and high-resolution oblique images obtained in previously deployed multiple Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) surveys. Then, functioning characteristics of these braided rivers are presented using three case studies focusing on three sites within three different watersheds. The talk will end by presenting photos of several unique animals living in the QTP.
