RIVER : Hydrological processes, erosion and sediment transport

RIVER : Hydrologic processes, erosion and sediment transport

Soil erosion and sediment transport associated with the flow of water from mountainous regions to the oceans are essential components of hydrosystem dynamics. Their environmental effects concern both quantitative and qualitative aspects of water resource and soil management and the sustainability of hydro-power as a renewable energy source. Sediment transport mechanisms and couplings between the different process involved are not yet fully understood. The scientific approach of the RIVER (...)
