Abstract

The development and increasing availability of global environmental data sets provides an opportunity to examine systematically the relationship between sediment yields and controlling catchment variables, employing Geographical Information Systems. The aim of his paper is to examine the controls on sediment yields within the Upper Yangtze basin, using catchment data extracted from various global data sets describing hydrology, climate, topography and population density. Attempts are made to reduce scatter through screening analyses based on geographic location (tributary), catchment size and elevation
