    Abstract

    A new synthetic inflow record for Talla Reservoir is derived from reservoir log data for the period 1907–94. The paper describes (i) the procedures which were adopted for the derivation, based upon a reservoir water balance, and (ii) the changes in contributing area. For the years since construction of an upstream reservoir in 1968, the summer analysis draws on data from a neighbouring catchment in order to provide analysis of a more homogeneous time series. The paper also discusses the possibility of undertaking similar work for other reservoirs, as a means of improving the knowledge of the past variability of UK water resources.
