NCR is the leading cooperative alliance between all major Dutch institutes for river studies. We integrate knowledge, facilitate discussion and promote excellent science.

RiverCare

Intro

Rivercare is a research programme in which the partners of NCR with several other public and private parties collaborate to monitor the consequences of measures which 4re now constructed in the Room for the River programmeand the Delta Programme.

The monitoring data will be used to improve the fundamental understanding of the behaviour of rivers, map the consequences of the measures for hydraulics, morphology and ecology and to improve the current models. The data, knowledge and models will be used to improve the design and maintenance of measures and cut costs of river management.
