Marked differences occur between modelling in scientific hydraulic research, in hydraulic engineering and in public decision making. This study reviews ifferences in the required accuracy of model results and differences in the choice between physical and numerical modelling. Physical models are used for studying elementary processes and their...

The Equatorian Daule and Babahoyo rivers combine into the tidal Guayas River with the largest estuary on the Pacific coast of South America. The city of Guayaquil, located along the Guayas, is the main port of Ecuador but at the same time the planet’s fourth most vulnerable city for future flooding due to climate change, after Guangzhou, Mumbai...

The main rivers of Bangladesh are boon and bane for the country. They supply water and fertile sediments allowing multiple crops per year, hundreds of waterways for navigation, rich fish stock and habitat diversity. But especially the dynamic, unpredictable Brahmaputra influenced rivers erode fertile floodplain land with long established...

Confluences are fascinating elements in river systems. The merging of tributary rivers produces complex hydrodynamics that can play an important role in sediment transport problems, ecological studies or the routing of a pollutant. If the two merging rivers originate from different regions they can have different characteristics. One such a...

Longitudinal training dams (LTDs) are  constructed in the River Waal in the  Netherlands. They are aligned parallel to the  river shore and divide the river into a main and  side channel. The existing groynes are  removed yielding more discharge capacity at  high flows. The side channel creates possibly a ...

Variable flows and fast morphological changes characterize the river system of Bangladesh, which includes the downstream reaches and delta of the Ganges and Brahmaputra rivers, two of the largest rivers in the world. In contrast, fresh water supply around the country largely depends on much smaller distributaries that take off from those large...

Large braided rivers have many beneficial  roles, from provision of water for agriculture  and means of transport to various ecosystem  services. However, they are  geomorphologically active, which results in  problems with bank erosion and navigability.  Some of the largest rivers may have bank line  shifts of...

Over the past centuries natural river banks have been transformed into banks with artificial revetments or sheet piles to protect them from erosion. Important river features for flora and fauna have disappeared and the ecological quality of the river reduced dramatically. Recently, the importance of the ecological function of rivers has been...

The 10 km wide Jamuna river in Bangladesh is  one of the most morphologically active rivers in  the world, with bank erosion rates of up to 500  m per year (Mutton and Haque 2004). Such  extreme river migration in the center of  Bangladesh, one of the most densely  populated and impoverished regions in the  world...
