Lighthouses of China: Jiāngsū

The Chinese province of Jiāngsū (previously spelled Kiangsu) extends southward from the base of the Shāndōng Peninsula to the mouth of the Yangtze River (Cháng Jiāng). The great port of Shànghǎi, now the center of one of the world's largest metropolitan areas, was built on the Huángpǔ River, an estuary on the south side of the Yangtze just above the mouth. Metropolitan Shànghǎi has been separated from Jiāngsū as a provincial-level metropolitan region, Shànghǎi Shì.

Liányúngǎng, a city at the northern end of Jiāngsū, has been developed as a major port to relieve some of the pressure on Shànghǎi. Between these two ports, most of the Jiāngsū coast is quite low and marshy, historically attracting little navigation and having no lighthouses. Recently, however, a containership terminal with a new lighthouse has been built at Dàfēng in the center of this area.

Lighthouses in China are maintained by the PRC Maritime Safety Administration. The administration is organized in four regional administrations; Jiāngsū lighthouses fall under the Shànghǎi MSA.

The pinyin system for transliterating Chinese into Latin characters is now the international standard, but some locations continue to be known also under the spellings of older transliteration systems. The Chinese word for a lighthouse is dēngtǎ (灯塔). In pinyin jiāo (formerly chiao) is a reef or rock, jiǎo is a cape or headland, dǎo (tao) is an island; (tsu) is a small island, wān is a bay and gǎng (kang) is a harbor.

ARLHS numbers are from the ARLHS World List of Lights. CN numbers are Chinese light list numbers. Admiralty numbers are from volume F of the Admiralty List of Lights & Fog Signals. U.S. NGA List numbers are from Publication 112.
