Fulbright visiting Prof. Dr. Elowyn Yager, University of Idaho, USA gives a course on fluvial geomorphology of mountain streams

Fluvial geomorphology of mountain streams LV 871.007 (3 ECTS)

The course will focus on scientific understanding of fluvial processes while providing practical engineering applications of flow hydraulics, morphology and sediment transport. As such, we will explore the diversity of fluvial geomorphology of mountain streams with natural hazard mitigation strategies, river restoration, and climate change effects on river systems. Our focus will be on network development, channel hydraulics, sediment transport, debris flows, river erosion, impacts of climate change, and river restoration tools.
