Abstract

The main objective of this study is to provide a concept to relate quantitatively floodplain characteristics, hydrodynamic and sedimentological variables with spatial patterns of overbank sedimentation at the scale of a river reach of several kilometres. For this purpose, a GIS-based sedimentation model was developed which uses two-dimensional water flow patterns simulated by a hydrodynamic model as a basis. The model was tested in a case study for 3 representative sections of the embanked floodplain of the lower river Rhine in the Netherlands, using observed patterns of deposition after a major flood event
