Summary
Abstract: Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations (FAO)/AGL
World River Sediment Yields Database

The World River Sediment Yields database contains data on annual
sediment yields in worldwide rivers and reservoirs, searchable by
river, country and continent. The database was compiled from
different sources by HR Wallingford, UK, on behalf of the FAO Land and
Water Development Division. It is currently in a test phase.

The database allows its user to enter the name of the river, the
country, or the continent for which they would like to see summary
sedimentation data. From this data, you can discover explanations of
the data and complete sedimentation records
