Project Number: 6060-13000-023-38
Start Date: Oct 01, 2013
End Date: Sep 30, 2015
Improved understanding of fluvial streambank erosion mechanics will be developed from ongoing studies along the Danube River downstream of Vienna, Austria. Data will be collected using USDA-ARS jet-test technology to characterize the resistance to erosion properties of the bank soils. These data will be used to evaluate the relationship between fluvial bank erosion rate and those factors controlling bank erosion used by USDA-ARS channel erosion models such as CONCEPTS and BSTEM.
