The Meuse river facilitates important socio-economic functions. In the light of Integrated River Management (IRM), the question rises whether these functions can be facilitated in future decades (until 2050) as well. The riverbed is expected to degrade over the coming decades, just like in the past century. On top of that, the discharge regime...

Worldwide, rivers provide important socio-economic and environmental functions and are essential to human well-being. The growing demand of user-functions and the change in river conditions due to large-scale morphology and climate change, increase the pressure on lowland river systems (e.g. Rhine, Meuse, Danube and Mississippi). To ensure a...

The summer and autumn of 2018 showed the negative effects of both low-flow conditions and bed degradation over the last century on the river functions of the Dutch Rhine. These resulted in record-breaking water levels, extreme low navigation depth and subsequently nautical problems. As climate change will increase the inter-annual variability of...

Door klimaatverandering verandert het afvoerregime van onze grote rivieren. Hoogwaters worden hoger en frequenter, laagwaters lager en langduriger. Hoe we daarop reageren hangt af van hoe we klimaatverandering zien: als opgave, of als kans om onvolkomenheden aan te pakken. In dit artikel presenteren we aanzetten voor een meer geo-ecologisch...

Until recently, governmental organizations played a dominant and decisive role in natural resource management. However, an increasing number of studies indicate that this dominant role is developing towards a more facilitating role as equal partner to improve efficiency and create a leaner state. This approach is characterized by complex...

We use the Dichotomous Markov Noise (DMN) model with constant transition rates to describe the dynamics of fluctuations in the water level as a stochastic process, which is imposed on river discharge changes. By applying this model, two different regimes are determined for the long-term behaviour of the river. Based on these regimes, we define...

Besluitvorming in het rivierbeheer gaat snel en met draagvlak. Terwijl de onderliggende systeembenadering in een kleine kring van professionals wordt opgesteld. Dit proefschrift onderzoekt de werking van de systeembenadering in de besluitvorming over projecten in het rivierbeheer. Het kijkt naar de dijkteruglegging Lent, de hoogwatergeul Veessen...

The debate on scale use in river management focuses primarily on the (lack of) fit between the biogeophysical and institutional systems. However, in this article we focus on the ‘subjective’ aspect of scale preferences in water governance. We apply an adapted version of the Integrated Scale Hierarchy for Rivers to determine the degree of fit...

The Fluvial design guide is aimed at professional staff engaged in the design process from the early stages of looking at alternative solutions through to the delivery of the outputs of design for the construction, maintenance, refurbishment or alteration of flood defence or land drainage assets. The guide is thus intended to be used by both...

This manual was inspired by the success of two comprehensive restoration projects undertaken on the Rivers Cole and Skerne which were led by the RRC’s predecessor, The River Restoration Project, on behalf of key UK environmental organisations and the riparian owners. The projects demonstrate a range of practical river restoration techniques from...

The first three chapters of this report offer introductions, each from their own viewpoint. In the first chapter, the focus point is the river landscape in general. Amongst others the history of human interference in the river landscape, theories on the ecological functioning of rivers and summaries of hydrological and morphological processes...

After the flooding events in the recent years in the Rhine and Meuse basin and the subsequently developed action plans, awareness has grown that the issue of flood risk management has to be considered in an integrated, transnational context where hydraulic, ecological and socio-economic functions of the river system are taken into account from...
