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.

Flood hazard reduction from automatically applied landscaping measures in RiverScape, a Python package coupled to a two-dimensional flow model

Straatsma, M. W., & Kleinhans, M. G. - 01/03/2018 - RiverCare
Seven flood reduction measures along the Waal river were ranked according to the water level reduction and the displaced material for their implementation.

Explaining artificial side channel dynamics using data analysis and model calculations

van Denderen, R. P., Schielen, R. M. J., Westerhof, S. G., Quartel, S., & Hulscher, S. J. M. H. - 15/02/2018 - RiverCare
We studied in detail the development of a side channel in the river Waal. A more frequently flowing side channel results in lower aggradation or sedimentation.

Ill-posedness in modeling mixed sediment river morphodynamics

Chavarrias Borras, V., Stecca, G., & Blom, A. - 13/02/2018 - RiverCare
Our aim is to provide modelers of river morphodynamics with the mathematical tools to detect the occurrence of ill-posedness in their results.

Exploring place attachment and visions of nature, of water-based recreationists: the case of the longitudinal dams

Ganzevoort, W. & van den Born, R.J.G. - 16/01/2018 - RiverCare
Major river interventions can greatly affect stakeholders and their connection to the river landscape. We show how recreationists’ perceptions of nature and landscape influence their expectations about a pilot intervention in the Waal river.

Nieuwsbrief rivierkundig onderzoek - januari 2018

Arjan Sieben, Frans Buschman - 01/01/2018 - KPP River research
Deze nieuwsbrief geeft een overzicht van activiteiten die in 2017 zijn uitgevoerd

Morphodynamic assessment of side channel systems using a simple one-dimensional bifurcation model and a comparison with aerial images

Van Denderen, R. P., Schielen, R. M. J., Blom, A., Hulscher, S. J. M. H., & Kleinhans, M. G. - 05/12/2017 - RiverCare
To aid the future design and maintenance, a set of diagrams allow to estimate both the equilibrium state and the time that takes for the bed load of the main channel to aggrade or deposit in the side channel.

Biodiversity recovery following delta-wide measures for flood risk reduction

Straatsma, M. W., Bloecker, A. M., Lenders, H. J. R., Leuven, R. S. E. W., & Kleinhans, M. G. - 08/11/2017 - RiverCare
We show the biodiversity recovery from 15 years flood risk adaptation that consider nature requirements building a spatial extension to calculate biodiversity scores.
