Invitation for the 1st Christiaan Brunings Lecture: 12 January 2016, 12.30-17.00 hr at Utrecht University

Theme: morphodynamics and sedimentology in estuaries

Estuaries harbour highly productive natural habitats and are of pivotal economic importance for food production, access to harbours and urban safety. Accelerating sea-level rise, changing river discharge and interference threaten these functions, but we lack fundamental understanding and models to predict combined effects of biomorphological interactions, inherited landscape and changing drivers.


  • keynote lecture prof. James Best (Illinois) on bars and bedforms in the Columbia River estuary
  • lecture dr. Jelmer Cleveringa (Arcadis) on bars and bedforms in the Western Scheldt
  • Metronome tidal facility demonstration

100 seats available (admission free) for practitioners and scientists working on estuaries
