Short summary
Processes linked to climate change and intensified anthropogenic pressure influence the environment, the hydrology. Quantitative assessments of sediment fluxes and their temporal evolution in this mountain region are required for various environmental and engineering purposes, including the planning and maintenance of water reservoirs and other structures. we present a first analysis of the hitherto largest suspended sediment yield (SSY) database for the Caucasus region.
