trefwoorden: China - inscripties - waterniveau
Few rivers around the world possess a thousand-year hydrological record except the Baiheliang on the Yangtze River.
Baiheliang (White Crane Ridge), now submerged under Three Gorges Reservoir water, carries the earliest and lowest water hydrological inscriptions, which record 1,200 consecutive years of water level changes.
