Multiscale modelling of migration of pollutant particles in rivers

Project description

Exploring river pollution

A natural and essential component of rivers and key in their functioning, fine-grained sediment (FGS) could also be a major source of chemical and physical pollution. Thanks to intensified agricultural activity and the associated rise in soil erosion in Europe, the amount of FGS in water streams has increased. As a result, the quality of water is deteriorating. To understand the dynamics of such sedimentation, the EU-funded MULTIPIR project will investigate the migration of FGS by developing multi-scale models to predict its transport and other factors. Ultimately, the project will create a pollution control map to guide river management.
