Sediment Accumulation in Reservoirs: Comparison of Watershed Sediment Yield Models with Measured Sedimentation Volumes
What is the reliability of existing watershed sediment yield models for predicting reservoir sedimentation?
Need and Benefit
Verification of a watershed sediment yield model would allow estimates of reservoir sedimentation where no survey data are available and help prioritize reservoir sedimentation survey needs.
Report illustrating data outputs of software packages (such as GeoWepp) vs real-world measurements of sediment accumulation in reservoirs.
