    From the records of the tide gauges,it is shown that sea level of the Zhujiang Delta tends to rise and the average rising rate is 2.028mm per year.But in some uplifted regions such as Huang Pu,Hong Kong,Chi Wan,Macau etc.,sea level tends to descend.The authors point out that sea level rise would have great influence on economic construction.According to their calculation,half of the Zhujiang Delta may drop down to sea level and may be submerged by sea water in about 2050.At that time,half of the fertile land in the Delta would be lost.Therefore,the dykes and dams along the coastline must be reinforced in order to deal with the rise of sea level.

    The north limits of the beach rock in Xiangshan (29°30'N),Zhejiang Province of China and in Suzu (37°29'N) of Noto Peninsula of Japan have been found,respec-lively.The former is located at middle ubtropical zone while the latter at warm temperate zone.The beach rocks can be divided into two types of intertidal and intense wave zone,and their subtypes is composed of sand,gravel,shell debris and coral reef debris.It is considered that the origin of beach rock is chiefly cemented by calcium carbonate deposits from sea-water but not from underground water and the calcium carbonate is existed in the form of aragonite and Mgrich calcite.There are some beach rocks of Late Pleistocene and Early Holocene in China but those in Japan are all dated Holocene.According to the ages,the Holocene beach rocks are classified into four groups in Japan:5000-6500a,3000-4500a,1000-2000a and 0-500a B.P.,and three groups in China:5300-5800a,3200-4400a and 0-2500a B.P.The development periods of beach rock are comparable with the warm climate periods in China or Japan.

    Surface sediment in the Yaling Bay can be divided into six types,of which siltymud is the main one.Minerals in the sediment are basically in accordance with those of the suspension load in the Daya Bay.Within the Yaling Bay sediment is more from the sea than from the land.Main direction of sediment from the sea is from southeast to northwest.Sediment from the land mainly consists of rock fragments which are carried from mountains by streams and surface flows of the earth,producing little effect to the sea area of more than 2m in depth.The two kinds of sediment are limited intage to quantity and therefore depositional velocity in the bay is slow.It gives advan the development of ports and waterways.

    The lingdingyang and Huangmaohai estuaries located separately at the east and west of the Zhujiang Delta,are the remain parts of the paleo-Zhujiang estuary in the evolution process of the delta.Both of them have the shape of the bell with under-water landform of "two channels and three shallows" .Although different in time anspace,they can be categorized as a transition between the estuary of strong tide anithat of runoff-dominated delta.The sedimentation model is basically similar to that oreserviors in rivers.Applying Lapshenkov formula which is used for calculating reservior sedimentation,it is predicted that the estuaries will be silted up in about 700years.

    The Danxia group of Eogene in the Jinjiling district of north Guangdong is a suit of red rock series in which the rock beddings are seen clearly and the'bed thick-nesses change cyclically.The dominant rock of the group is calcareous feldsparthic quartz sandstonewith purplish red colour.The rock is mainly characterized by medium compositional maturity,medium diagenetic strength and certain dissolubility.Because of the characteristics,the rock with fractures is weathered faster than that without fracture when the water penetrates through the fractures,so some distinctive Danxia landscapes such as deep crevices and narrow channels are developed along the fractures.The formation of the bedded-caves is related to a kind of feldsparthic quartz sandstone that container more calcite and more diagenetic fractures.The development of microlandforms are mainly controlled by the lithological charac-teristics of the rock.Sheet erosion,dissolution and sedimentation play an importantrole in creating the micro-Danxia landform.

    In this paper,some problems on regional division of city management are discussed in relation to practices of the management zone in Guangzhou and some other cities.Firstly,the division principle and method of city administration are studied on the basis of present condition and the experience of management zone of city adminis-tration(e.g.Guangzhou).It is proposed that different administration zones of city be graded according to scale and strength of districts,the demarcation line of district groups be located on a place where the group has relatively low impression.The grade,range and boundary line of the zone be readjusted in light of group change.Secondly,the administration zones in large city can be classfied into "the whole city proper", "multipurpose management zone" and "social zone",and named after traditional place name with feature.

    The main problems of the former public construction facilities in Foshan Urban Districts use to be:(1)the quantity of the facilities couldn't catch up with the needs of the increasingly growing population;(2)their distribution was irrational;(3)part of them were incomplete and old.In resent years,as the urban district economy develops,the public facilities have been reconstructed and distributed rationally.The former "one-sided way'of distributing the facilities has been changed into "many-sided way",in which the public facilities are divided into three levels:city facilities,district facilities,and residential quarter facilities,thus the public facilities can be made full use of.The author considers that in the overall urban planning,the scale and quotas of the public facilities should be desided according to the levels of the urban economic development and living requirement,e.g.
