Evaluating sediment yield estimations from large-scale hydrologic systems using the rating curve concept

D. Zarris, and D. Koutsoyiannis, Evaluating sediment yield estimations from large-scale hydrologic systems using the rating curve concept, RMZ - Materials and Geoenvironment, 52 (1), 157–159, 2005.



A new approach in studying sediment yield from large hydrologic systems is presented that utilizes sediment rating curves in conjunction with reservoir sediment deposits downstream of the measurement site. It is shown that the rating curves, even with inadequate measurements, can provide a good basis for the computation of sediment yield.
