KPP River research

Intro

Within KPP project river research (“Kennis Primaire Processen project rivierkundig onderzoek”) questions from the Dutch river authority Rijkswaterstaat are answered by applied research. The applied studies are focussed on practical solutions for the questions of the river manager, aiming to apply the solutions within 3 years.

Overview

The topics of the applied research are various, ranging from morphodynamic modelling of the Dutch rivers, the interaction of sailing ships with the river bed to ecological benefits of measures as placing wood in the river. In an annual newsletter a summary of the results is given for each topic.
