Modelling Rivers


Rivers are natural water courses. They have vital contributions to the social and economical welfare of societies living along their course. They provide continuous, usually dependable, flow and supply of water. Accordingly, centralised civilisation began emerging independently along number of river valleys; e.g. the Nile, Tigris and Euphrates, the Indus and the Yellow Rivers. Since then, mankind has been in continuous struggle to understand and live in harmony with this gift/force of nature. Modelling rivers is the modern way to understand their behaviour and is an essential tool to tackle several river problems.

Hi Guys! I am working modeling the hidrodynamic and sediment transport behavior of a Colombian river and right now I would like to know if any of you know which phisical or numerical parameters can be use to calibrate the model. Would be very useful your comments, thanks!
