About the project

E1 RiverCare KDD 2016The aim of this study is to build or improve a model that can simulate the spatial development of floodplain vegetation patterns in Dutch floodplains. However, the model should be set up generically, so that it applicable to a broad range of lowland rivers. The model must be able to adequately describe the effects that natural and anthropogenic alterations have on those vegetation patterns. As reality is subjected to uncertainties, the model results must reflect those uncertainties as well.
