Abstract:

This report summarizes the procedures used for computing the basinwide annual yields and single event sediment production for ephemeral channels located on an incised alluvial fan in Central California. Unique geomorphic characteristics of the basin and alluvial fan are discussed in light of data and analytical methods necessary to compute sediment delivery and yield at a proposed damsite. Keywords Feasibility studies Flow duration Flood control Regional methods Sediment transport Flood detention reservoirs Alluvial fans Sediment production Sediment yield Transport capacity Geomorphology Single event analyses Episodic flows Average annual sediment yield.
