Short summary
This article accounted for the change in sediment supply in the central Yellow Sea since the last deglaciation. Sediment sources were distinguished based on the integration of clay mineralogical and geochemical data such as trace elements and Sr and Nd isotopes. The core 11YS-PCL14 was divided into four units and showed clear vertical variations according to sediment supply and sea level change.
