River Restoration: Fluvial-Geomorphic and Ecological Tools

Date: 
Monday, June 22, 2020 - 09:00 to Friday, June 26, 2020 - 17:00
Location: 
Beaumont du Ventoux, Provence FR

This shortcourse/workshop emphasizes understanding geomorphic process as a sound basis for planning and designing river restoration projects and programs, with specific applications and field visits to Mediterranean and mountain environments.  The course draws heavily on innovative process-based river restoration and management experiences in France and elsewhere in the EU, complemented by experiences in North America.  Instruction includes lectures, field exercises, problem sets and workshops on approaches to planning and implementing process-based restoration, with instructors drawn from

Innovative Water Week

Date: 
Monday, June 22, 2020 - 09:00 to Friday, June 26, 2020 - 17:00
Location: 
Online

In 2050 Europe aims to be the world’s first climate-neutral continent implementing the European Green Deal: an ambitious package of measures to deeply transform our economy and society. In the meantime, the wake-up call of the COVID-19 crisis deeply reinforced this necessity for Europe to a new paradigm towards a Water-Smart Society, from crisis management to risk management and prevention in Europe and beyond.

Fish Passage 2020 - International Conference on River Connectivity

Date: 
Sunday, June 28, 2020 - 09:00 to Friday, July 3, 2020 - 17:00
Location: 
Lisbon, Portugal

Rivers rank among the most threatened ecosystems in the world, but also among the most valuable to society. Therefore, a large amount of funding is made available for restoration programmes. Conflict over water is not only one of the most widespread global stressors, but can also have an impact on nature and people. For centuries, dams and weirs have been built to control floods, improve navigation, provide supply for drinking water or irrigation, create or enhance recreation opportunities, as well as a means for hydropower production.

Sediment Transport in Stream Assessment and Design

Date: 
Monday, July 27, 2020 - 09:00 to Friday, July 31, 2020 - 17:00
Location: 
Logan, Utah, USA

This course is intended for those who wish to understand and apply the principles of sediment transport to alluvial channel assessment and design. Principles of open channel flow and sediment transport are combined with watershed-scale, hydrologic and sediment source analysis to place channel assessment and design in the appropriate context. Tools for estimating sediment supply at the watershed to reach level are applied in class exercises.

Geomorphic and Ecological Fundamentals for River and Stream Restoration

Date: 
Monday, August 17, 2020 - 09:00 to Friday, August 21, 2020 - 17:00
Location: 
Truckee, California, USA

This five-day introductory course emphasizes understanding geomorphic and ecological process as a sound basis for planning and designing river restoration, covering general principles and case studies from a wide range of environments, and includes field measurements, mapping, interpretation, field trips to the Truckee River and streams in the Lake Tahoe Basin, and workshops on stream restoration problems faced by participants.
