The presented new method of forecasting the rate of accumulation of sediments suspended in reservoir water in bottom sediments allows for the obtainment of reasonable estimates of the siltation process globally, regionally or locally, without the need for costly research. The method draws on three key parameters, i.e., the concentration of sediments suspended in water (SS), and its organic matter (OMSS) content, as well as retention capacity (N) (i.e. the volume of water in a reservoir). All of these are easy to determine, with information on them in fact made widely available by most agencies managing reservoirs in different parts of the world. In practice, the method can represents a missing link in the precise determination of reservoirs’ rates of siltation (and hence losses of retention capacity).
