James Syvitski (Geological Sciences & INSTAAR) walks over a reservoir dam, Apennine Mountains, Italy, August 2004. Through modeling and field efforts, Albert Kettner (not pictured, Geological Sciences & INSTAAR) and James Syvitski found that these small reservoirs are extremely efficient at trapping sediment and thus, greatly impact the natural dynamics of the many small rivers that discharge into the Adriatic Sea. The project is funded by the Office of Naval Research. Photo: A. Kettner (Geological Sciences & INSTAAR).
