[en] Complexity in sediment transport and morphological modelling stems specifically from the variety of relevant physical processes as well as from their multi-scale nature, both in space (from grain- to catchment scale) and in time (from quasi-instantaneous bank failures to silting of reservoirs within decades). To address this, the HACH group has developed a unique modelling system, which offers high flexibility in coupling flow and sediment transport sub-models to cover the broad spectrum of relevant time scales.
In this framework, the HACH has convened on 29 and 30 July 2010 an international symposium, during which recent advances in morphological modelling have been presented, as well as progresses in grain scale experiments and field measurements. The symposium was supported by the University of Liege and the Fund for Scientific Research FNRS. Contributions from many European countries were presented and discussed, including Austria, Belgium, France, Italy, Netherlands, United Kingdom and Switzerland.
