Subaqueous deltaic deposits with approximately 30 radiocarbon ages show that the Changjiang River delta was strongly affected by tides and that the delta progradation rate after 2 kaBP was almost double the rate before 2 kaBP. This change in the progradation rate correlates well with the active extension of the subaerial delta plain shown by previous work. Widespread human activities, such as farming, deforestation, and dike construction, probably resulted in an increase in sediment discharge to the river-mouth area.
