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.

Future sediment budget and distribution for the Rhine-Meuse delta

11/02/2021 - Rivers2Morrow
Delta channels worldwide are undergoing natural and anthropogenic activities which change their sediment budget and sediment distribution. The Rhine-Meuse delta. The primary cause of this loss is the extensive dredging undertaken in the RMD which maintains navigation to the network of offshore and inland ports which make up the Port of Rotterdam (Becker (2015); Cox et al. (submitted)). As sea levels rise and upstream sediment supply is predicted to decrease, knowledge of future sediment budgets and distribution is crucial to maintain delta elevation. Here we construct a sediment budget for two future scenarios 2050 and 2085 which incorporate both socio-economic change and climate scenarios for the region.
