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...

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 ...

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...

We experimentally tested the effect of a  largerange in helical flow intensity and  sedimentmobility on equilibrium transverse  slopes,which resulted in a function for slope  effectsdepending on bed state and  sedimenttransport mode, that deviates from  linearfunctions with sediment mobility in  literature...

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...

Although many studies regarding bank erosion  and accretion can be found in the literature, it is  not common to find works studying the interaction  between opposite banks. Some existing  morphodynamic models describe bank erosion as  an event that depends on near-bank flow and bed  topography, as well as on...

Recently, engineers propose longitudinal  training walls to replace traditional transverse  groynes. This new intervention is expected to  maintain a navigation route under low flow  conditions while not hampering flow  conveyance of the river channel. Navigation  occurs mainly in low-land river channels where ...

Challenging neighbourhoods in large cities most often lack social coherence. Meaningful social interaction between citizens in such neighbourhoods is needed to increase coherence, and games may be a means to this end. This paper reflects on the structure of a dedicated game design workshop with teenagers from 12 to 16 years of age designed to...

Sediment management measures are  becoming increasingly popular as they are  considered sustainable from both economic  and environmental point of view. For example,  aimed at counteracting river bed degradation,  sediment nourishments have been carried out  in the German reaches of the Rhine river while  a...

The Ribb River is one of the components of the  Blue Nile River system located in the North  Western part of Ethiopia. It drains to Lake  Tana, the source of the Blue Nile River. The  Ribb has a length of 130 km, with a catchment  area of 1,812 km2. The average yearly rainfall  of the catchment is 1300 mm, with...

After the primary extraction in oil reservoirs up to 60 % of the oil remains trapped in the reservoir (Sen, 2008). Therefore, different mechanisms have been developed to get the oil out to the reservoir. One of these techniques is Microbial Enhanced Oil Recovery (MEOR) which is a technique used to produce more oil in a secondary extraction by...

When rivers are forced by statistically invariant boundary conditions (i.e. an upstream water discharge, upstream sediment discharge and downstream base level that fluctuate around constant mean values), and are not subject to any forcing with a temporal trend (e.g. no uplift/subsidence, no sea-level rise), they tend to a morphodynamic...

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...

Lateral sorting (= bend sorting) is observed in  natural meanders, where the inner and outer  bend are fairly fine and coarse, respectively  (e.g. Julien and Anthony, 2002; Clayton and  Pitlick, 2007). This is caused by the mass  differences between grains on a transverse  slope, leading to coarser grains being...
