The aim of the present project is to develop new technologies to obtain relevant results on bathymetry waterways and reservoirs. The basic aim is to achieve new methodologies and proven technologies to determine the capacity of rivers and reservoirs in relation to the monitoring of the quantity and dynamics of sediments. The intention of the research team is also preparing a software tool for the preparation of elevation geometric data watercourses, which will feed into the hydrodynamic models for flood analysis needs. The project is fully in line with two specific objectives subroutine namely the reduction of the impact of anthropogenic impacts on the environment and reduce the negative consequences of natural disasters and their prevention. Due to the comprehensive approach of this project will also alternated proposals for concrete measures on prevention of sediment and thereby reducing the storage capacity of rivers and reservoirs. For the purpose will be created catalogue of measures for prevention of sediment, which will describe the specific proposals for measures which have an impact on the elimination of sediments. Sediments, as a fundamental expression of surface runoff and erosion are currently in quantitative evaluation determined mainly derived using empirical methods (USLE and related relationships) , the volume of sediment deposited into the aquatic environment then using the ratio of Runoff Sediment Delivery Ratio . To verify the results is also expected to sediment transport models (SMODERP, AnnAGNPS, WATEM/SEDEM, SWAT, trough HEC - RAS, MIKE DHI, etc.).
