The Geul River, located in the south-eastern part of The Netherlands, is a meandering river with a planform shape characterized by large loops consisting of multiple bends. The AA. evaluate the effects of groundwater flow on the shapes of meanders as a possible explanation for the multi-bend loops, using a combined meandering-groundwater computer model. In the model seeping groundwater enhances bank erodibility
