The IMMERSE project, co-funded by the Interreg North Sea Region Programme, is hosting its first Transnational Exchange Lab on 12-13 June 2019 in Gothenburg, Sweden. The IMMERSE project aims to address the challenges facing North Sea estuaries by investing in the improvement of management measures, including the development of new and innovative techniques. The knowledge exchange event will focus on sediment management, flood protection and governance. Workshop program.
|17-20 June||17th “EUROPE-INBO 2019” International Conference for the Implementation of the European Water Directives, Lahti, Finland.|
|29 July – 2 August||Sediment Transport in Stream Assessment and Design, Logan, Utah, USA.|
This course is intended for those who wish to understand and apply the principles of sediment transport to alluvial channel assessment and design. Principles of open channel flow and sediment transport are combined with watershed-scale, hydrologic and sediment source analysis to place channel assessment and design in the appropriate context. Tools for estimating sediment supply at the watershed to reach level are applied in class exercises. Threshold and alluvial channel design methods are presented along with guidelines for assessing and incorporating uncertainty. The course balances advance reading, lecture, field work, and hands-on exercises for estimating sediment supply, calculating sediment transport rates, and forecasting channel response to water and sediment supply. This course is intended for participants who are familiar with basic principles of river geomorphology.
|12-16 August||Geomorphic and Ecological Fundamentals for River and Stream Restoration”, Truckee, California USA.|
This five-day introductory course emphasizes understanding geomorphic and ecological process as a sound basis for planning and designing river restoration, covering general principles and case studies from a wide range of environments, and includes field measurements, mapping, interpretation, field trips to the Truckee River and streams in the Lake Tahoe Basin, and workshops on stream restoration problems faced by participants.
