Modeling sediment yield and deposition using the SWAT model: a case study of Cubuk I and Cubuk II reservoirs, Turkey
Better understanding of which factors determine sediment yield rate to reservoirs can facilitate estimation of the probable lifespan of a reservoir and appropriate mitigation measures to limit reservoir sedimentation. Therefore, the research summarized here enhances understanding of correlations between potential control variables on suspended sediment yield and the resulting sediment yields to reservoirs. The Soil and Water Assessment Tool (SWAT) was applied to a portion of the Ankara River catchment, which comprises an area of 4932 km² in the central Anatolia region of Turkey. SWAT was calibrated ...
