The East China Sea (ECS) is a typical marginal sea located between the Eurasian continent and west Pacific Ocean. In this study, we review state-of-the-art research progress on the possible sinks of the Changjiang-derived sediments in the ECS during the late Quaternary. The major sinks of these sediments in the ECS are on the outer shelf and the Okinawa Trough during the last glacial maximum corresponding to a lowstand of sea level. During the deglacial marine transgression, the gently dipping shelf was rapidly inundated and strong tides prevented fine sediment from deposition on the open shelf, resulting in the...
