Seminar on measurement and data processing techniques for hydro-morphological assessment of regulated rivers, lakes and reservoirs

Lagt ut av


The measurement techniques to be presented and discussed aim at covering all relevant techniques within remote sensing, various air-borne devices and instruments operated on-ground, floating on the water surface or possibly below the water surface.

Geographical information systems (GIS) will be central data processing tools to present.

The purpose of the seminar is to present state-of-the-art in terms of measurement and dataprocessing techniques for the assessment of hydro-morphological conditions in regulated rivers, lakes and reservoirs.

The Norwegian hydropower system is ageing, and many hydropower plants are due for technical refurbishment and re-licensing of environmental conditions. There is currently extensive research going on throughout Europe in order to establish a classification system for hydro-morphological status and changes in rivers and lakes. The workshop will present techniques that are considered important in order to support re-licensing of hydropower concessions and classification of water-bodies, and as the basis of proposing cost-efficient measures to reach good ecological status or good ecological potential.

The seminar will be arranged as a joint effort between the research centre HydroCen, the CEDRENSusWater and the Environment Agency-HyMo projects. The seminar January 9th will be succeeded by an internal workshop January 10th with the purpose of having more in-depth discussions of the various measurement and processing techniques and their possible future applications.
