Experimental Analysis of Scour Features at Chevrons in Straight Channel
Eco-friendly river restoration structures are used to create localized scour pools which serve as fish nurseries and promote biodiversity. In this category, chevrons are relatively new structures
Equilibrium morphology and scour evolution at blunt nosed chevrons
Blunt nosed chevrons are low‐head river restoration structures commonly used in large rivers to enhance the navigation and aquatic habitat. These structures usually create scour regions in their
Two-dimensional hydraulic modelling of submerged river training structures
River training structures, such as dikes and chevrons, are commonly used for improving riparian navigation conditions. These structures are usually submerged under most flows and are aligned at
A Comparison of Main and Side Channel Physical and Water Quality Metrics and Habitat Complexity in the Middle Mississippi River
Worldwide large rivers have been severely modified by human intervention. Many modifications result in disconnection of the river from floodplain and off‐channel habitats generally characterized by
DVODIMENZIONALNO HIDRAVLIČNO MODELIRANJE POTOPLJENIH REČNIH UREJEVALNIH OBJEKTOV
River training structures, such as dikes and chevrons, are commonly used for improving riparian navigation conditions. These structures are usually submerged under most flows and are aligned at
An experimental design based methodology for calibrating 2D hidromorphodynamic numerical models for rivers
The confidence level of a numerical model is strongly related to the calibration and validation processes and the quality of their adjustment. Typically, numerical 2D models for rivers that involve
Impacts of climate and land use change on hydrodynamics and sediment transport regime of the Ganga River Basin
Under climate change and pressure from human activities, extreme flood events are becoming a significant concern. The study involves setting up a coupled hydroclimate-hydrodynamic models over the

Hydroecological modeling of the Lower Missouri River
The Lower Missouri River (LMOR) has been altered in both its channel form and flow regime by channelization and upstream dams. As a result, habitat availability for many fish species has been greatly
Evaluation of the Missouri River shallow water habitat using a 2D‐hydrodynamic model
Many of the Upper Missouri River dikes have been notched to create additional shallow water habitat (SWH, operationally defined as areas in the stream with depth < 1.5 m, and velocity < 0.75 m s−1)
Assessment of shallow-water habitat availability in modified dike structures, Lower Missouri River, 2004
This study documented the effects of wing-dike notching on the availability of shallow water habitat in the Lower Missouri River. Five wing dikes were surveyed in late May 2004 after they were
The Importance of Physical Habitat Assessment for Evaluating River Health
TLDR
The development of new technologies particularly relating to survey methods should help improve the speed and level of detail attainable by physical habitat assessments and the range of physical habitat assessment methods that have been developed in recent years.
Application of a 2D hydrodynamic model to design of reach‐scale spawning gravel replenishment on the Mokelumne River, California
In‐stream chinook salmon (Oncorhynchus tschawytscha) spawning habitat in California's Central Valley has been degraded by minimal gravel recruitment due to river impoundment and historic gravel
Physical Stream Habitat Dynamics in Lower Bear Creek, Northern Arkansas
Abstract : This study evaluated the roles of geomorphic and hydrologic dynamics in determining physical stream habitat in Bear Creek, a 239 km2 watershed in the Ozarks in northern Arkansas. During a
Habitat rehabilitation on the upper Mississippi River
Upper Mississippi River ecological integrity has been severely compromised by human activity during the last 50 years. In response to the continuing decline of natural resource values, two approaches
Habitat Use by Middle Mississippi River Pallid Sturgeon
TLDR
Sonic transmitters were surgically implanted in 27 individuals from the middle Mississippi River to learn more about habitat use and selection by pallid sturgeon, and Strauss's linear selectivity index values indicated that study fish exhibited positive selection for the main-channel border, downstream island tips, between-wing-dam, and wing-dam-tip habitats.
