SediPlan-r project

Sediment budgeting and planning for rivers in South-Tyrol: from hazard mitigation to environmental restoration (SEDIPLAN-r) is an extensive project funded by the European Regional Development Fund (EFRE-FESR) and the Autonomous Province of Bozen-Bolzano that investigates and quantifies the sediment transport and morphological changes of river channels at different spatial and temporal scales, with the final goal of identifying priorities for sediment management. The overall objective of SEDIPLAN project is to quantify transport rates and their variability along the South-Tyrol hydrographic network, investigating the possible impacts associated with hydroelectric production in order to develop priorities for future sediment management
