This asset was last updated in 2000 and is therefore extraordinarily outdated, but is kept online at users' requests.
This database contains data on annual sediment yields in worldwide rivers and reservoirs (560), counts around 850 points in 78 countries, and it is 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.
With regard to data quality, a validation was performed at the time of the study, but the information is now outdated.
The update frequency was a one-time exercise done in 2000. It is therefore extraordinarily outdated, but is kept online at users' requests.
