Abstract : Reservoirs are man-made features which are in a state of constant change, both seasonally and over a relatively short number of years. Being important economic units, of great concern to a number of branches in the national economy, they must be kept under constant surveillance in order to determine any significant changes. The most effective means for conducting such observations is the use of aerial photographs. The article is devoted to the importance of aerial photographs for this purpose, giving some examples of the type of information which can be read from aerial photographs, and some proposals for the more effective use of aerial photographs in studying the dynamic picture of changes in reservoirs.
