Re-evaluating safety risks of multifunctional dikes with a probabilistic risk framework

Marijnissen, R., Kok, M., Kroeze, C., & van Loon-Steensma, J. - 10/04/2019 - All-Risk
An additional step to the basic assessment allows estimating the probability of the presence and absence scenario of nature and housing for the reinforcement of a typical Dutch river dike for flood safety.

Residual Biomass: A Silver Bullet to Ensure a Sustainable Bioeconomy?

A. E. Bout, S. F. Pfau, E. van der Krabben & B. Dankbaar - 20/12/2018 - RiverCare
Using residual biomass, such as grass and wood chips, as a resource instead of treating it as waste is not automatically more sustainable.

Uncertainty quantification of flood mitigation predictions and implications for decision making

Berends, K. D., Straatsma, M. W., Warmink, J. J., & Hulscher, S. J. M. H. - 14/11/2018 - RiverCare
For six typical interventions along the river Waal, we show that the choice between interventions can be different when relative uncertainty is taken into account.

Predicting effects of ship-induced changes in flow velocity on native and alien molluscs in the littoral zone of lowland rivers

Koopman, R., Collas, F. P. L., Breure, A. M., Lenders, R., van der Velde, G., & Leuven, R. S. E. W. - 12/11/2018 - RiverCare
Shipping increases local flow velocities thereby potentially decreasing species richness of freshwater mussels and snails which in turn affects ecosystem functioning and services.
