Side channels are often constructed to reduce flood risk and increase biodiversity. We assess several side channel systems and propose a method to estimate their development. River managers can use these insights to plan design and maintenance efforts.
Data-collection methods: Numerical modeling Remote sensing
Key locations: IJssel River (NL)
Spatial scale: Channel
Temporal scale: 1-10years 10-50 years
Morphodynamic assessment of side channel systems using a simple one-dimensional bifurcation model and a comparison with aerial images
