Sediment transport in fluvial, estuarine and coastal environment
ID: 607394
Start date: 2013-09-01, End date: 2017-08-31
Sediment transport in the fluvial, estuarine and coastal environment causes significant morphological changes and results in the amplification of floods, storm surges and other inundation hazards. This increases considerably the risk of failure of structures, disruption of fu...
