Morphodynamics 2015

Topic of the international workshop: “Numerical Methods of Water-Soil Boundary Layers under Currents and Waves”: The characterization of processes at the boundary layer between river bed and free water area due to hydrodynamic load is still a problem. Complex influences and nonlinear behavior even on micro scale level make the estimation difficult. Therefore, morphodynamic forecasts to estimate the sediment transport in rivers and coastal areas are as important as ever.

In the last years, several approaches in numerical methods have been developed to describe the interaction in the transition zone. The methods are multifarious and deal with diverse scales and physical correlations. Independently the method results show improvements on accuracy, sensitivity and reliability.

The workshop will give an overview of the present numerical methods used for reproduction of short and long term morphodynamics at the boundary layer of water and riverbed.
