Towards Practical Guidance for Sustainable Sediment Management using the Sava River Basin as a Showcase. Estimation of Sediment Balance for the Sava River

Towards Practical Guidance for Sustainable Sediment Management using the Sava River Basin as a Showcase. Estimation of Sediment Balance for the Sava River
  • DELTARES, European Sediment Network (SedNet), International Sava River Basin Commission, UNESCO-International Hydrological Programme (IHP). December 2013
  • The main objective of this project is to develop and validate a practical guidance on how to achieve a Sustainable Sediment Management (SSM) Plan on the river-basin scale, using the Sava River Basin as a showcase. A core expert group has been established to analyze the sediment balance for the main Sava River course, also considering the input from the main tributaries, and thus to form a basis for sustainable transboundary sediment and water management. After collecting existing data the core expert group analyzed and evaluated the existing sediment data in the Sava River Basin, and made the best estimation of basin-wide sediment balance. Also, the core expert group analyzed temporal variability of the sediment data at the mean annual scale, estimated seasonal pattern and identified the role of floods in sediment transport. The information is presented across 8 chapters, including an overview of the Sava River Basin and its main tributaries and a conclusion providing proposed data-based solutions
