Paper Title:
Influence Analysis of Flow-Sediment Processes on River Health
  Abstract

The paper analyses the affecting factors of river health points that river channel health is the key and foundation of river health. It proposes the index system for the Lower Yellow River's channel health and sets the appropriate evaluation criteria and indicator weight. It evaluates the Lower Yellow River's channel health using fuzzy comprehensive evaluation method and gets the conclusion that the Lower Yellow River's channel health has deteriorated in 50 years and has not improved until the beginning of this century. Finally, the paper points that river health is closely related to flow-sediment processes and the coordination of flow-sediment relationship is the key to maintaining the health of the Lower Yellow River.
