JRA2 COMPLEX - Cross Disciplinary Observations of Morphodynamics and Protective Structures, Linked to Ecology and Extreme Events
Cross Disciplinary Observations of Morphodynamics and Protective Structures, Linked to Ecology and Extreme Events
To represent climate change in experimental modelling, introducing long-term trends and extreme events, there is a need to develop experimental facilities that can better include system complexity and non-linear interactions between system elements. This JRA will tackle the challenge of incorporating complexity in modelling and thus develop protocols that allow holistic assessments of adaptive interventions in hydraulic experiments, providing exportable knowledge about the facilities and benchmark data sets.
The main aim of COMPLEX is to expand the capabilities of existing environmental hydraulic facilities of excellence so that they can provide quantified predictions, incorporating the complex, often non-linear, interactions between sediment, water, biota and structures.
