Human interventions in a bifurcating river system: Numerical investigation and uncertainty assessment

Gensen, M. R. A., Warmink, J. J., Huthoff, F., & Hulscher, S. J. M. H. - 2021 - All-Risk
For intervention design in a bifurcating river, it is important to consider the entire river system and explicitly account for a range of discharge conditions to avoid unwanted water level increases throughout the river system.

Low-hanging fruits in large-scale fluvial landscaping measures: trade-offs between flood hazard, costs, stakeholders and biodiversity

Straatsma, M. W., Fliervoet, J. M., Kabout, J. A. H., Baart, F., and Kleinhans, M. G. - 19/09/2018 - RiverCare
We show that the multidimensional evaluation of river interventions in the Waal river opens up opportunities to discuss possible trade-offs.

Flow Bifurcation at a Longitudinal Training Dam: Effects on Local Morphology

de Ruijsscher, T., Naqshband, S., & Hoitink, T. - 05/09/2018 - RiverCare
Qualitative comparison of the river bed dynamics in the side channel of the longitudinal dam and the flat bed conditions in the scale model at low water level.

Late Holocene channel pattern change from laterally stable to meandering – a palaeohydrological reconstruction

Candel, J. H. J., Kleinhans, M. G., Makaske, B., Hoek, W. Z., Quik, C., & Wallinga, J. - 31/08/2018 - RiverCare
We show how the Overijsselse Vecht river changed from a laterally stable to a meandering river ca. 500 years ago and further developed a methodology to reconstruct the historical discharge.

Users’ perspectives about the potential usefulness of online storylines to communicate river research to a multi-disciplinary audience

Cortes Arevalo, V. J., Verbrugge, L. N. H., Haan, R.-J. den, Baart, F., van der Voort, M. C., & Hulscher, S. J. M. H. - 14/08/2018 - RiverCare
This was the first and exploratory step on our initiative of using storylines for science communication. Researchers and practitioners think that stories of science that include facts could be useful!

Understanding actor perspectives regarding challenges for integrated river basin management

R. J. den Haan, J. M. Fliervoet, M. C. van der Voort, V. J. Cortes Arevalo & S. J. M. H. Hulscher - 09/08/2018 - RiverCare
People use different world views when addressing problems, often resulting in different views on both the problem and its solution. For this paper, we explored management challenges and actor perspectives on these in Dutch integrated river basin management.


CPT based unit weight estimation extended to soft organic soils and peat

Lengkeek, A., de Greef, J., & Joosten, S. - 21/06/2018 - All-Risk
A new correlation is proposed that can be used to estimate the saturated soil unit weight from sands to highly organic soils. Our proposal outperforms other considered correlations. The variation in the estimation is however still considerable and comparable to earlier studies.
