The Advanced Hydromorphology (Level 3) course builds on and applies the concepts introduced in the Hydromorphology Level 1 and Level 2 courses. This is an interactive course which involves a detailed hands-on application of basic sediment transport equations and flow regime equations. These will be used to help assess the current river condition and plan and design a river restoration project using case studies in urban and rural settings. We will provide the tools and training to help with these assessments and present river restoration and natural flood management techniques. The course is aimed at consultants, contractors, academics, catchment partners, NGOs, trusts and representatives from local authorities, local government and statutory agencies.

Requirements: participants are expected to have attended the Introduction to Hydromorphology (Level 1) course, or the River Habitat Survey Certification course, and the Hydromorphology for River Restoration (Level 2) course; or demonstrate equivalent previous training/knowledge.
