The Jing River (simplified Chinese: 泾河; traditional Chinese: 涇河) or Jing He (Pinyin: Jīng Hé), also called Jing Shui (simplified Chinese: 泾水; traditional Chinese: 涇河), is a tributary of the Wei River (Chinese: 渭河), which in turn is the largest tributary of the Yellow River.
The Jing River flows for 455.1 kilometres (282.8 mi), with a basin area of 45,000 square kilometres (17,000 sq mi). The river's flow varies greatly throughout the year, and soil erosion causes serious problems in its basin. Summer floods cause the Jing to be laden with sediment; in the dry season, the river flows with relatively clear water.
