Humans have intervened in rivers for centuries. River engineering measures have aimed at protecting populations against flooding, ensuring reliable and safe navigation, providing freshwater for drinking, domestic and industrial use, irrigation, and energy supply, and providing opportunities for recreation. All around the world, measures such as...

Hydropeaking is a widely applied management practice in the generation of hydropower. When the demand in electricity is high, the operator of a hydropower plant rapidly increases released discharges to meet this demand. Vice versa, when the demand is low, no or less water is released. However, while river regulation practices offer valuable...

Following a 2015 Memorandum of Understanding, efforts began to develop a transboundary water allocation plan in the Mara River Basin between Kenya and Tanzania. Many lessons were learned along that way, including the importance of involving basin and national water authorities in all phases of data collection, planning and decision-making;...

Low-lying coastal cities are vulnerable to compound floods caused by many factors including river flows, tides and local rainfall. Many previous studies focus on the impacts of rainfall and tidal levels (two driving factors) on estuaries or regions near the main single river, while research about the three influencing factors on the floods...

Over the past century, the main channel of the Waal has experienced erosion of approx-imately 1-2 metres (Ylla Arb´os et al., 2021; Chowdhury et al., 2023). This erosion leads to various problems such as instability of struc-tures or disruption to shipping. To address this ongoing degradation, a potential solution is the implementation of...

River morphology can be described at different scales: at the basin scale we distinguish the river network; at the reach scale the planform, the slope and average features, such as the width and bankfull water depth; at the cross-section scale the transverse variations of river bed topography; and at smaller scales we observe bedforms and...

Recent policy initiatives in Europe emphasize a movement towards nature-based solutions in flood management; however, a quantitative relationship between specific flood management measures and indicators of ecological health and biodiversity is difficult to establish (Penning et al., 2023). In the Netherlands, several studies have been conducted...

Climate change is responsible for global shifts in precipitation patterns and an overall in-crease in global temperatures. The transi-tions are anticipated to modify the river hydro-graph and sea level. The changes to the hy-drograph are also likely to influence sediment flux. These alterations imply shifts in both up-stream and downstream...

The dynamics of the bifurcating Karnali river in the western plains of Nepal and India is governed by the geomorphological processes in an alluvial fan. The dynamic branches showcase a notable degree of braiding, dominant channel switching and unequal discharge partitioning. Since recent switching of the dominant channel of Karnali system...

The Netherlands, Germany, and Belgium were hit by heavy and prolonged precipitation in July 2021. As time passed, weather warnings escalated, leading to evacuations due to predicted floods, including in the Rur catchment. It was difficult to forecast the flooding of the Rur, raising the question of which elements are crucial in a flood...

In this study, the relationship between water quality and agriculture in the upstream region of the Brantas catchment has been investigated, with a focus on Electric Conductivity (EC), Dissolved Oxygen (DO), pH, nitrate, Biological Oxygen Demand (BOD), phosphate and ammonia concentrations. The EC concentrations ranged from 120 to 570 μS/cm, the...

Over the past centuries, the Dutch rivers have been extensively engineered with the construction of hydraulic training works. A changing climate and increasing demands of river functionalities require innovations to the system to ensure its resilience. Exploring potential applications of Xstream elements might contribute to the development of...

In a Ghana project, field measurements at the Black Volta aimed to enhance hydrological predictions for the Bui power dam. Validating devices and exploring floodplain contributions, such as with GNSS reflectometry and cameras, provides crucial insights for dam management and model improvement.<br/><br/>In this multidisciplinary project,...

This research addresses how Ricanau Mofo, a low-lying village in Surinam, can become a more water-adaptive and sustainable village, while it faces land erosion, river bank erosion, changing rainfall patterns and sea level rise. It is urgent to intervene, as these issues are expected to increase in occurrence due to climate change. Constraints...

The Saigon River, coursing through Ho Chi Minh City, is a vital yet alarmingly polluted waterway. It ranks among the top 50 rivers globally contributing to plastic pollution. This study delves into the complex mechanisms governing the transport of floating plastic within a tidal system, such as the Saigon River.<br/>Our methodology adopts a...

Rivers are vital for maintaining freshwater ecosystems as they distribute nutrients as well as dilute and transport anthropogenic pollution. Tracers provide direct empirical data on complex waterflows and reveal transport processes of waterborne substances. Recent advances in material engineering and biomolecular technology have made it possible...

The Rhine River distributes water to more than 60 million residents, vital industries, and important agricultural sites across a total of eight countries. However, due to climate change, the availability of water resources has become increasingly dependent on seasonal supply and internal distribution (UNESCO, 2009). Moreover, extended periods of...

The River Nile has been a lifeline for northeastern Africa for thousands of years, supporting the growth of civilization, agriculture, and trade. The history of the Nile can be traced back to ancient times. The fertile banks of the Nile have supported the civilization of the ancient Egyptians. Since Egypt received almost no rain, the ancient...
