Increase of discharge and sedimentation by increasing precipitation:
After calculating specific precipitation, discharge and sedimentation values, precipitation-discharge and sedimentation ratio has been estimated in the desired watershed.
Dividing precipitation, discharge and sedimentation values by the area of watershed for each season, specific precipitation, discharge and sedimentation indices can be computed in order to compare their seasonal values of the desired watersheds.
Sedimentation data were classified on the basis of dry and humid seasons by which better results have been achieved while modelling discharge and sedimentation relationships because of precipitation variations in various seasons which play important roles in the sedimentation amount.
According to the results, precipitation in humid seasons (spring and winter) leads to the increase in discharge amount as well as sedimentation rate.
