The continuous geomorphologic changes in the Middle Rio Grande in New Mexico have been of interest for many governmental agencies involved with the management and operation of this river system. Due to sedimentation problems along this river, highly developed plans for sediment detention and flood control have been carried out. Cochiti Dam was built as a part of these plans to control floodflows and induce degradation along the main stem.

Keywords: morphology, geomorphologic changes, sedimentation, Cochiti Dam, Middle Rio Grande
