Learning outcomes

Students will gain an overview of the fluvial processes, river dynamics and fluvial geomorphology. Furthermore, computational fluid dynamics and field measurements will be lectured and demonstrated in lectures and practicals. After finishing this course, students have improved their knowledge and practical research skills in fluvial studies and the related field measurements and modelling approaches.


The course is divided into general lectures, case study lectures and practicals given by members of Fluvial Research Group. Students will undertake practical work in change detection of river channel based on laser scanning and flow measurements; computational fluid dynamics; and discharge/flow stage measurements/calculations.
