PROFILE: Hungry Water: Effects of Dams and Gravel Mining ...

/ Rivers transport sediment from eroding uplands to depositional areas near sea level. If the continuity of sediment transport is interrupted by dams or removal of sediment from the channel by gravel mining, the flow may become sediment-starved (hungry water) and prone to erode the channel bed and banks, producing channel incision (downcutting), coarsening of bed material, and loss of spawning ...

2021-8-1  Abstract. Human disturbances in fluvial system in the form of inverse land use change, construction of dam or reservoir for hydroelectric power generation, flow diversion for flood mitigation and supply of irrigation water, gravel and sand mining are the causes of changing fluvial dynamics over the last decades throughout the world (Bhattacharyya in The Lower Damodar River, India ...

Impacts of River Sand Mining SpringerLink

2014-6-13  Mining of sand manifold higher than natural replenishments leads to severe damages to river systems. The mining process not only intercepts movement of sediments along the river channels, but disturbs the sediment balance established in the system over the geological time periods.

Impact of Gravel Mining on River System Stability

Impact of Gravel Mining on River System Stability. Data from the Lower Mississippi River are presented and analyzed relative to trends which may be attributed, in part, to the removal of the gravel armor from the bed of the river by gravel mining. A significant change with time of both the size and gradation of the bed material of the Lower Mississippi River is documented.

Geomorphic and environmental effects of instream gravel mining

1994-4-1  Instream gravel mining involves the mechanical removal of gravel and sand directly from the active channel of rivers and streams. Active channel deposits are desirable as construction aggregate because they are typically durable (weak materials having been eliminated in river transport), well-sorted, and frequently located near markets or on transportation routes.

The Geomorphic Response of Gravel‐Bed Rivers to Dams ...

2012-2-17  Bed incision on most gravel-bed rivers below dams is modest, typically on the order of several metres or less. Mixed grain-sizes typical of gravel-bed streams create the opportunity for textural adjustments that would not be present if the grain-size distribution were more homogeneous.

Impacts of riverine sand mining on freshwater ecosystems ...

2020-2-5  Rivers are a major source of sand and gravel for numerous reasons: cities tend to be located near rivers so transport costs are low; river energy grinds rocks into gravels and sands, thus eliminating the cost of mining, grinding, and sorting rocks; and the material produced by rivers tends to consist of resilient minerals of angular shape that ...

Combined effects of dam removal and past sediment mining ...

Dam removal is of growing interest for the management of sediment fluxes within fluvial basins, morphological evolution and ecological restoration of rivers. If dam removal experiments are now quite well documented for small streams located in the upstream parts of river networks, examples of lowland and relatively large rivers are still scarce. In this study we present a dam removal operation ...

Rivers in Iran are heavily influenced by human activities, so that they have undergone many changes. In the meantime, gravel mining is one of these activities that has several environmental impacts on the various aspects of river environments. Gravel mining from river is a process in which gravel is removed from the bed and the banks of the river (Anger, 2003).
