Abstract:
The project is mainly realised within a dissertation and benefits from a well-developed research environment, such as the Erlenbach catchment. This well-instrumented Swiss torrent catchment offers an exceptional series of measurements of transport rates and discharge. In field campaigns and with additional computer-aided analysis of remote sensing data we will assess the role of form roughness and bed load availability in influencing transport capacity. In addition, we use a sediment transport simulation program, SETRAC, that helps us to test and our approaches. Experiments can be conducted in our physical lab, which is, among other things, equipped with flumes and a rain simulator.

Leading questions:
Untersuchung von Hydraulik und Transport bei unterschiedlich rauhen alpinen Wildbächen unter verschiedenen Abflussbedingungen mit dem Ziel:
Zusammenhänge von Bachbettrauigkeit und Sedimenttransport erfassen und
Abschätzung von Transportvolumen bei starken Niederschlagsereignissen.
