Hydroecology and the fine sediment conundrum: quantifying, mitigating and managing the issues

06 July 2016

Type: National Meeting

The meeting will consider the fine sedimentation cascade in its broadest sense and will feature three invited keynote talks: Dr Gary Bilotta (University of Brighton), Prof. Adrian Collins (Rothamsted Research) and Dr Chris Extence and Richard Chadd (Environment Agency) Presentations and posters will be welcomed in the following areas: (note: abstract deadline 29 april 2016)

  • Sediment transport, erosion and deposition in freshwater systems
  • Methodological advancements in the assessment of fine sediment transport, deposition and the clogging of sub-surface substrates.
  • Ecological consequences of fine sediment.
  • Interactions between aquatic ecology and fine sediment
  • Management, conservation and restoration of aquatic ecosystems associated with fine sediment pressures.
