Abstract: Dam construction has changed natural sediment loads in rivers at the global, regional, and local scale. This study investigates the potential impacts of four proposed cascade dams on downstream sediment loads in the lower Jinshajiang in the upper Yangtze basin. The sediment trapping efficiency of the proposed dams was computed, and the amount of trapped sediment estimated. The changing trends in sediment loads since the 1950s in the study section (both main channel and main tributaries) are examined to understand the current status and likely future trends after completion of the dams. A sediment budget is constructed for various time periods in the river section. Copyright © 2010 IAHS Press.
