Scientific research and practice can be perceived as two different worlds. However, both worlds deal with the same question: how to improve current river management. In the daily practice, the river managers encounters problems involving various research questions. Sometimes scientific research is needed to address the questions. How do we get this scientific knowledge implemented in practice and improve river management together? For this NCR Theme Day, we want to connect these two worlds and bridging the gap by use of the case: discharge distribution over bifurcation points in the Dutch Rhine branches.
We will address the questions:
- how well do we know the (changing) discharge distribution and;
- how does this knowledge contribute to questions in river management.
The discharge distribution is a key issue in the IRM (Integrated River Management) programme. Based on presentations from a science perspective (Maarten Kleinhans UU, Jord Warmink UTwente and Kifayath Chowdhury TUD) and from policy and maintenance practice (Frans Klijn Deltares, RWS-IRM and RWS-ON) we initiate the discussion on this topic and hope to bridge the gap between science and practice.
