What does this course cover?
Designed to give attendees an overview of the essential role that fluvial geomorphogical dynamics play in river design, restoration and management, this introductory course is ideal for those seeking a catchment-wide perspective for flood relief planning, Water Framework Directive related compliance and strategic restoration studies.
Knowledge of river hydromorphology and geomorphological dynamics is fundamental for sustainable river design and management. It facilitates the assessment of risk, increases understanding within the Environmental Impact Assessment process, helps alleviate flooding impacts and informs instream flow requirements, system restoration and ecology.
By the end of this series of training modules you will have an understanding of how geomorphology is used in relation to sustainable river management, the methods used in geomorphological assessment and fluvial audit and where river geomorphology can be usefully applied to indicate where further guidance and information can be found.
