Paper Title:
Analysis of the Sediment Characteristics of the Caofeidian Sea Area
  Abstract

Caofeidian harbor is a large size deep-water harbor currently under construction in the eastern coast of north China. The construction began in 2003. Based on the measurements and analysis of the sediment samples collected from 2008 to 2010, the characteristics of suspended sediment concentration, suspended sediment and bed material grain diameter of the Caofeidian sea area with the progress of the engineering are presented. The measurements and analysis reveal that i) the suspended sediment concentration is low and decreases with the engineering progress; ii) the suspended sediment is very fine and becomes coarse in the deep-water channel; iii) the bed sediment in the east of Caofeidian foreland is much coarser than that in the west part.
