The Coastal Zone of Sedimentation in Reservoirs of Angara
G. A. Karnaukhova
Discusses the coastal zone of sedimentation one of the largest systems in the world artificial reservoirs – the Angara reservoirs. It is established that the main source of sediment reaching the formation of the coastal zone, are abrasion shores, providing annually from 90 to 100 thousand tons of terrigenous material. It is revealed that leading lithodynamic types are deposits of hydrodynamic flows and gravity sediments.
