METHODOLOGY FOR ASSESSMENT OF ECOHYDROLOGICAL EFFECTS OF DAM CONSTRUCTION IN A HEADWATER REGION (1998)
<p>For the assessment of ecohydrological effects of dam construction in headwater regions an evaluation method is presented based on the socalled "ecological risk assessment". This method allows the determination of the spatially detailed ecological risk for ...

HUNGRY WATER: EFFECTS OF DAMS AND GRAVEL MINING ON RIVER CHANNELS (1997)
KONDOLF G. M.
<p>Rivers transport sediment from eroding uplands to depositional areas near sea level. If the continuity of sediment transport is interrupted by dams or removal of sediment from the channel by gravel mining, the flow may become sediment-starved (hungry water) ...
