Global river sediment yields database

This database contains data on annual sediment yields in worldwide rivers and reservoirs, searchable by river, country and continent.

This work was compiled from different sources by HR Wallingford, United Kingdom, on behalf of the FAO Land and Water Division.

In principle, AQUASTAT Programme products are updated periodically in order to maximize the quality and completeness of reported information. However, this database was last updated in 2000, and will unfortunately not be updated periodically since other priorities demand the limited resources AQUASTAT has available. But at the request of users this information is anyhow kept online, since the information is useful for some users.
