Prof. Garry Pender chairs special session at River Flow 2014


This year the 7th International Conference on Fluvial Hydraulics, River Flow2014, is being held in Lausanne, Switzerland.  The conference aims to promote exchanges of knowledge regarding fluvial hydraulics and river morphology with a particular focus on the interaction between water, sediments and structures in natural or built environments.  Garry chaired the session on  "River monitoring and remote sensing methods" earlier this morning.  Professor Pender said

“developments remotely sensed data provide an exciting opportunity to collect flood data over a large spatial extent. Once the research methods mature the will facilitate data collection that will significantly enhance computer model calibration and validation.”
