Title: FAO/AGL World River Sediment Yields Database
Description:
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 Data URL: "http://www.fao.org/ag/AGL/aglw/sediment/default.asp" Information taken from "http://www.fao.org/ag/AGL/aglw/sediment/default.asp"
