Wallingford to Host Course on Rivers Capacity
The course named “River capacity and the influence on vegetation and habitat management” is scheduled for 5 November 2014, in Wallingford, UK, and it will provide an overview of how to estimate the capacity of rivers.
The course focuses on the use of a free-available tool, the Conveyance Estimation System (CES) designed to solve simple types of assessments.
According to hrwallingford.com, the influence of vegetation on water levels and how to consider it and the estimation of flow parameters that influence the habitats will be discussed.
The course is designed for those who are interested in flooding problems and the impacts of changes on river conditions caused by maintenance works (such as cutting of vegetation or dredging).
