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.
