Determination of turbidity and suspended sediment concentration in alpine rivers by evaluating the fullwave information of high-resolution bathymetric lidar datasets
Supervising board members: Markus Aufleger, Stefan Achleitner
This PhD thesis addresses the issue of bed load management in alpine run-off-river hydropower plants. The research employs a combination of physical and numerical modeling techniques to assess the development of river bed morphology and analyze the effectiveness of various measures in minimizing sedimentation and its impact on hydropower production.
