Abstract: A chapter on reservoir deposits written for the ASCE Sedimentation Manual scheduled for publication soon is presented. Reservoir sediment surveys are defined. Guidelines are listed concerning how frequent the surveys should be run. Field equipment is described including sonic sounders; distance measuring apparatus, and auxiliary equipment. Piston core, gravity type, gamma probe, and other types of sediment deposit samplers are illustrated and described. Contour and range methods of reservoir sediment surveys are explained. Several methods of reservoir capacity computations are presented mathematically and graphically.
