Soil and water conservation programs frequently use catchments as planning units. An important follow-up component of these programs is the installment of hydrosedimentometric and water quality monitoring projects to evaluate the impact of the practices introduced. However, in some cases, these monitoring projects have yielded inconclusive results, mostly due to procedural limitations. This review explores methods that combine traditional monitoring techniques with sediment source identification to further elucidate the impact of conservation practices on sediment yield in the catchment and dynamic interactions between different sediment sources.
