Multi-scale fluvial remote sensing, from large scale planning to restoration monitoring

Lunchtime seminar by Herve Piegay. Fluvial remote sensing is becoming a very critical issue to better understand river processes and changes, target management actions at regional scale, diagnose river status and promote adaptive strategies through intensive channel monitoring. A few examples from South-east France are introduced and discussed. More information and registration following this link.

Vacancy assistant professor numerical models for river hydraulics

Please be advised of the following vacancy at University of Twente (full link). The application deadline is May 26th.

As the current state-of-the-art hydraulic river models are becoming increasingly complex we ask for a numerical modeler who knows the engineering river models and is a specialist in numerical schemes and CFD models. You can align with the national initiative of a numerical river lab in which the links and differences of 1D-2D-3D river models are central. We envision applications to ecohydraulics (pollution, plastics), sediment transport and hydrology (floods, droughts). Also, this modelling will be used to evaluate the effects of human interventions as side channels, dike replacement or land use changes. For a balanced composition of our team, we have a preference for a person having a civil engineering background.

KPP Rivierkundig onderzoek: Nieuwsbrief Maart 2019

This post is only available in Dutch


Het doorlopende toegepast-onderzoeksprogramma KPP Rivierkundig Onderzoek (KPP River research) heeft een nieuwe nieuwsbrief uitgebracht waarin het onderzoek voor 2018 is samengevat. Dit geeft een overzicht van de meest aansprekende resultaten. Onderdelen als een case studie morfologisch modelleren bij de langsdammen in de Waal of bodembescherming met hout bij ontgrondingskuilen in de Rijnmaasmonding staan ook dit jaar op het programma.

SAVE THE DATE: River Flow 2020, 7-10 July 2020

The 10th Conference on Fluvial Hydraulics under the auspices of IAHR, River Flow 2020, will be held in Delft, The Netherlands, from 7 to 10 July 2020, (with masterclasses on the 6th of July).

Find updates or subscribe to the newsletter at The deadline for abstracts submission is 15 August 2019.

The conference themes are:

  1. rivers in urbanised areas;
  2. climate change and extreme events;
  3. river functions under pressure;
  4. nature based solutions;
  5. the healthy river;
  6. river resources: food, energy, water;
  7. the digital river;
  8. river fundamentals.

We look forward to meeting you in Delft next year.
