EP002:
Advancing river ecosystem understanding and management





Session ID#: 24649

Session Description:
Physical and biological processes operating at a range of spatial and temporal scales produce diverse river and floodplain ecosystems. There is increasing recognition that understanding these processes, and their interactions, is necessary for successful river management and restoration actions. This session explores these themes and will emphasize contributions that i) advance our mechanistic understanding of biophysical processes in rivers and/or ii) demonstrate how the practice of river management improves by leveraging this process knowledge. Example topics may include: quantifying biota-hydraulic interactions (environmental fluid mechanics), network response to disturbances, and restoration design under uncertainty and changing environmental conditions.
