Abstract [en]

Mosul dam is one of the biggest hydraulic structures in Iraq that was built on the Tigris River 60 km north-west Mosul city north of Iraq. The water surface area of its reservoir is 380 km2 with a storage capacity of 11.11×109 m3 at a maximum operation level (330 m.a.s.l). The dam became operational in 1986. No study has been conducted to determine the sedimentation rate, storage capacity and new operational curve since that date. To develop an up to date operational curve, a new bathymetric survey was conducted in 2011. The results indicated that the reduction in the storage capacity of the reservoir was 10.29 %. This implies that the annual sedimentation rate within the reservoir was 45.72×106 m3.yr-1 (0.41%) that is less than the average worldwide rate. Consequently, a new operational curve was constructed.
