Abstract

The AA. examined 27 reservoirs in the northern and eastern Mojave Desert that trapped sediment from small drainage basins on alluvial fans over the past 100 yr, calculated annual sediment yield, and estimated the average recurrence interval (RI) of sediment-depositing flow events. Combining the volume of sediment stored in the reservoirs with the dates of railroad construction, the AA. calculate sediment yield from the small drainages over periods of 90 to 100 yr
