  • Multiple Scales of Suspended Sediment Dynamics in a Complex Geometry Estuary

    By Fernanda Minikowski Achete

    Many estuaries are located in urbanized, highly engineered environments. Cohesive sediment plays an important role due to its link with estuarine health and ecology. An important ecological parameter is the suspended sediment concentration (SSC) translated into turbidity levels and sediment budget.…

  • River Flow 2014

    Edited by Anton J. Schleiss, Giovanni de Cesare, Mario J. Franca, Michael Pfister

    The behaviour of river systems is a result of the complex interaction between flow, sediments, morphology and habitats. Furthermore, rivers are often used as a source of water supply and energy production as well as a waterway for transportation. The main challenge faced by river engineers today,…

  • Reservoir Sedimentation

    Edited by Anton J. Schleiss, Giovanni de Cesare, Mario J. Franca, Michael Pfister

    Despite the mechanisms of reservoir sedimentation being well known for a long time, sustainable and preventive measures are rarely taken into consideration in the design of new reservoirs. To avoid operational problems of powerhouses, sedimentation is often treated for existing reservoirs with…
