Proven strategies for controlling reservoir sediment All the state-of-the-art tools you need to extend water reservoir life by controlling sediment are packed into this hands-on resource. It helps you plan, design and manage both existing and proposed reservoirs and their associates watersheds. You'll learn to manage sediment for sustainable development. . .analyze suspended and deposited sediment. . .and estimate and measure erosion rates. Packed with clear illustrations and how-to examples, the book give you the know-how to: master sediment transport processes in reservoirs apply mathematical and physical models to analyze sediment processes route inflowing sediment through or around reservoir storage pools use turbid density currents to control sedimentation empty and scour sediments from a reservoir by means of hydraulic flushing and much more
