Ice breaking up in spring on the Yellow River in Northern China. From 1968 to 2001, the freeze duration has shortened significantly by 38 days at Bayangaole and 25 days at Sanhuhe, respectively. The flow rate has reduced from 500 to 260 m3 s−1, and the expanse of river freeze has also decreased significantly by about 310 km. In the lower reach of the river, the location of earliest ice breakup has shifted downstream significantly in the last 50 years.
