    Abstract

    The use of sidescan sonar systems to study sediment mass flows and their positions in relation to engineering structures in reservoirs is discussed. Such investigations can help in the anticipation of potential dangers to valve gears or dams. Seismic reflection profiling may be used in the recognition of disturbed sequences and discontinuities such as incipient failure planes. (D.W.T.)
