Abstract:Because of the change in flow conditions that they create the construction of dams and the resulting reservoirs tend to trap a large proportion of the fluvial sediments that enter the reservoir. Knowledge of the trapping efficiency of reservoirs is important in assessing locations for new reservoirs as well as estimating the active life of existing reservoirs.
