IAHR, founded in 1935, is a worldwide independent member-based organisation of engineers and water specialists working in fields related to the hydro-environmental sciences and their practical application. Activities range from river and maritime hydraulics to water resources development and eco-hydraulics, through to ice engineering, hydroinformatics, and hydraulic machinery.

Analysis of the controls on the sedimentation in the three gorges reservoir
The reservoir sedimentation is not only related to the inlet and outlet flow-sediment discharge conditions,but also the river
pattern of the reaches in its backwater area.Based on the long record of annual runoff and suspended sediment load at
the control hydrological stations on the upper Yangtze River and the main tributaries(Minjing River,Jia Lingjiang River) in
the past 60 years, this paper firstly applied the Mann-Kendall test and R/S analysis method to detect the temporal-spatial
distributions of the variations in annual runoff-sediment transport and their changing trends;and then combined a
developed 2-D numerical model with the field measurements at the typical reach in The Three Gorges Reservoir to
analyze the relationship between the river pattern and the distribution of the reservoir sedimentation.
