Welcome to the 24rd edition of the NCR Days, the annual meeting of the Netherlands Centre for River studies (NCR), hosted by Delft University of Technology. Organized around the theme “Anthropogenic Rivers”, this year’s NCR Days will take place on 13-14 April 2022 in a hybrid format, in person in Delft as well as online.

Effecten van zeespiegelstijging op baggeren en riviermondingmorfologie

05/10/2022 - Rivers2Morrow
Aan de hand van schaalexperimenten, empirische relaties en praktijkvoorbeelden van riviermondingen en delta's wereldwijd, stellen wij vast dat baggeren en SLR samen de bochtmigratie versterken, terwijl SLR alleen leidt tot decentralisatie van kanalen en verdrinking van het intergetijdengebied.

Effects of Sea-Level Rise on Dredging and Dredged Estuary Morphology

05/10/2022 - Rivers2Morrow
Using scale experiments, empirical relations and real world examples from global estuaries and deltas, we identify that dredging and SLR combined enhance bend migration whereas SLR alone leads to decentralizing of channels and drowning of intertidal area.

Sediment deficit and morphological change of the Rhine–Meuse river mouth attributed to multi-millennial anthropogenic impacts

15/07/2022 - Rivers2Morrow
In this research, we trace the development of one system, the Rhine–Meuse delta in the Netherlands (RMD) from two natural estuaries (the RME fed by the Rhine river and the HVL fed by the Meuse river) to a densely urbanized delta and the effect human activities have had on its morphology through time.

Sedimenttekort en morfologische verandering van de Rijn-Maasmonding toegeschreven aan meerjarige antropogene invloeden

15/07/2022 - Rivers2Morrow
In dit onderzoek traceren we de ontwikkeling van één systeem, de Rijn-Maasdelta in Nederland (RMD) van twee natuurlijke estuaria (de RME gevoed door de Rijn en de HVL gevoed door de Maas) tot een dicht verstedelijkte delta en het effect dat menselijke activiteiten in de loop der tijd hebben gehad op de morfologie ervan.

Een globale synthese van de doeltreffendheid van sedimentatiebevorderende strategieën voor rivierdelta's en riviermondingen

01/07/2022 - Rivers2Morrow
This synthesis enables intercomparison between SES and helps to further evaluate advantages and drawbacks of each SES. It can also help to guide the design of future strategies in other deltas. Our comparison includes their cost, their (projected) elevation gain, spatial footprints, lifetime, land-use, and required governance arrangements.

De effecten van zeespiegelstijging op de riviermondingmorfologie in gebaggerde en ongebaggerde systemen

06/06/2022 - Rivers2Morrow
Wij bestuderen het effect van SLR op natuurlijke versus gebaggerde kanalen aan de hand van schaalexperimenten van riviermondingen om na te gaan hoe SLR de baggerpraktijk zal beïnvloeden en welke effecten dit zal hebben op de kanalen (zullen ze eroderen?) en de omliggende gebieden (zullen ze verdrinken?).

The Effects of Sea-Level Rise on Estuary Morphology in Dredged and Undredged Systems

06/06/2022 - Rivers2Morrow
We study the effect of SLR on natural versus dredged channels using scale experiments of river mouths to determine how SLR will affect dredging practice and the effects it will have on the channels (will they erode?) and surrounding areas (will they drown?).

Residual sediment transport in a stratified estuarine channel

13/04/2022 - Rivers2Morrow
Based on field measurements and sediment transport modelling, we aim to unravel the mechanisms controlling residual sediment fluxes in highly stratified estuarine channels, by focusing on the New Waterway.

Channel Bed Erosion Characteristics in the Upper Dutch Rhine Bifurcation Region

13/04/2022 - Rivers2Morrow
This abstract focuses on the local channel bed erosion characteristics at the Upper Dutch Rhine bifurcation area. The knowledge can be used to signal trends in the partitioning of water and sediment and prepare mitigation measures to maintain a safe situation.
