    OVERVIEW

    The course is divided into two modules and provides expertise on how the morphology of rivers is shaped by the action of stationary and non-stationary free-surface motions. 

    In the module "FLUVIAL HYDRAULICS AND MORPHODYNAMICS",  the non-tidal case is considered and the basic principles for the evaluation of sediment transport and riverbed evolution are formulated.

    The module "TIDAL ECO-MORPHODYNAMICS"  focuses on the tidal case and the general processes involved in the morphodynamics and eco-morphodynamics of lagoons and estuaries will be considered.
