The main objective of this research is to  improve our understanding of the relative  contribution of the causes of long-term bed  degradation in Rhine and other degrading  rivers. That is, the research is intended to  quantify past channel adjustment processes,  mainly bed degradation and bed surface  coarsening over time and space, and to predict  future trends, in bed elevation and bed surface  texture, resulting from past interventions.
