JSS Special Issue: SedNet 2023 Submission Deadline Extension

“Sediment continuum: applying an integrated management approach”

For the JSS Special Issue, “Sediment continuum: applying an integrated management approach”, we invite manuscripts that have been presented as talks or posters at the SedNet 2023 conference aiming to explore various challenges and proposed solutions related to sediments.

We welcome theoretical and case studies that address, among other topics, quantification and management of sediment movement, sediment quality assessment, sediment health and ecosystem service provision, excess sediment and its reuse, anthropogenic impact assessment, sediment conservation, sediment exploitation, climate change impacts on sediments, and an integrated management approach that enables the sediment continuum. The goal of this issue is to bring together in one volume the new research on sediments presented at the SedNet 2023 conference that has gone through the thorough peer-review process, to make it available to a broader audience, and to highlight the importance of addressing sediment management issues and the impacts of global climate change on sediment quantity and quality.

Guest editors: Jasmina Obhodas (PhD), Marta Castellote (PhD), Susanne Heise (PhD), Elena Romano (PhD) & Cristina Ponte Lira (PhD).

The submission deadline is extended to the 29th of February 2024.

For manuscript submission, please follow the additional instruction and choose “SI SedNet 2023” under “Additional Information” on the JSS platform. This option becomes visible after selecting “Research Article” as the article type.

Netwerken na 15 jaar nog altijd springlevend!

This is a message for the Dutch-speaking people in our network

In 2008 in de 1e Deltaresponse – het medewerkersmagazine van Deltares – stond een artikel over de bodem- en sedimentnetwerken waar de Deltares unit Bodem- en Grondwatersystemen op dat moment actief in was: Platform Bodembeheer, Nicole en SedNet. 

In een artikel in de 50e Deltaresponse (jaargang 16, februari 2023) wordt beschreven dat deze drie netwerken nog steeds springlevend zijn!

13th International SedNet Conference: Final Call for Abstracts

The deadline for the submission of abstracts is extended until the 6th of March 2023

From the 6th until the 8th of September 2023 the SedNet conference will take place in Lisbon, Portugal.

At the conference we invite abstracts for a series of sessions aiming to explore different challenges and proposed solutions related to this theme. Among other topics, we explicitly welcome case studies from practice that preferably engaged stakeholders and that included how policies and plans were developed for the range of interlinked issues experienced along the continuous journey of sediment from upland to the depositions sites. This includes how to quantify and manage sediment movement, how to assess sediment quality, sediment health and ecosystem service provision, how excess sediment can be re-used, etc.

Special attention will also be given to challenges posed by anthropogenic influences, resource exploitation and climate change, and how we can truly apply an integrated management approach that enables the sediment continuum.

The proposed thematic sessions are:

1. Sediment quality guidance and sediment quality assessment

2. Circular economy – sediment as a resource

3. Sediment in coastal and marine management

4. Climate change and sediment pledge (joint session with PIANC navigating a changing climate)

5. Sediment management concepts and sediment policy

6. Climate change and sediments: direct and indirect consequences and opportunities

7. Sediments health: what is it and how to achieve it?

8. Zero pollution in the soil-sediment-water nexus

9. Sediment literacy

Please find below the document for the first announcement of the conference and the Final Call for Abstracts. Here you will also find the template for submission of abstracts.

For questions please contact the SedNet Secretariat.
