Numerical modelling as a support tool for river habitat studies: An Italian case study
Numerical modelling is becoming a major tool for supporting environmental studies at different scales, thanks to the ability of up-to-date codes to reproduce the complex mechanisms of the natural environment in quite a ...
Dealing with sediment transport in flood risk management
Flooding events are rising across European watercourses because of changing climatic conditions and anthropogenic pressure. To deal with these events, the European Floods Directive requires the development of flood risk ...
Applying ADCPs for long term monitoring of SSC in rivers
(American Geophysical Union, 2019-12)
The flow rate and the suspended sediment concentration (SSC) of two different rivers draining into the Adriatic Sea basin, the Secchia in Italy and the Devoll in Albania, were analysed by processing the data collected in ...
On the main components of landscape evolution modelling of river systems
Currently, the use of numerical models for reproducing the evolution of river systems and landscapes is part of the day-by-day research activities of fuvial engineers and geomorphologists. However, despite landscape evolution ...
Deriving Planform Morphology and Vegetation Coverage From Remote Sensing to Support River Management Applications
With the increasing availability of big geospatial data (e.g., multi-spectral satellite imagery) and access to platforms that support multi-temporal analyses (e.g., cloud-based computing, Geographical Information Systems, ...
A Review on Land Use and Land Cover Change in Ethiopian Basins
Land Use Land Cover (LULC) changes analysis is one of the most useful methodologies to understand how the land was used in the past years, what types of detections are to be expected in the future, as well as the driving ...
Numerical modeling of the hydro-morphodynamics of a distributary channel of the Po River Delta (Italy) during the spring 2009 flood event
One-dimensional (1D) numerical models generally provide reliable results when applied to simulate river hydraulics and morphodynamics upstream of the tidal influence, given the predominantly unidirectional flow conditions. ...
Tidal modulation of river-flood deposits: How low can you go?
(The Geological Society of America, 2020)
Quantification of the interaction between river discharge and tides is vital to characterize fluvio-deltaic systems, to identify diagnostic elements of tidal signatures in the rock record, and to reconstruct paleogeographies. ...
Hydrological responses to land use land cover changes in the Fincha'a watershed, Ethiopia
Land use land cover (LULC) changes are highly pronounced in African countries, as they are characterized by an agriculture-based economy and a rapidly growing population. Understanding how land use/cover changes (LULCC) ...
