Abstract [en]

Mosul dam is one of the biggest hydraulic structures in Iraq. Its storage capacity is 11.11×109 m3 at a maximum operation level 330 m of a.s.l. The dam became operational in 1986 and no survey has been conducted to determine its storage capacity and establish new operational curves since this date. In this research topographic map scale 1: 50000 dated 1983 was converted to triangulated irregular network (TIN) format using the Arc/GIS program to evaluate the operational curves. Then the reservoir was surveyed in 2011 to establish the reduction in its storage capacity and to develop new operational curves. The results indicated that the reduction in the storage capacity of the reservoir was 14.73%. This implies that the rate of sedimentation within the reservoir was 45.72×106 m3.yr-1. The results indicated that most of the sediment was deposited within the upper zone of the reservoir where the River Tigris enters the reservoir.
