The aim of this study was to reduce uncertainty in roughness information for instream vegetation. This in turn reduces the uncertainty in estimating water levels in channels where aquatic vegetation is present. Roughness plays an essential role in water level estimation as it reduces the discharge capacity through energy expenditure on boundary generated turbulence as well as through physical blockages by vegetation. Apart from the hydrology analysis for determining the inflow to the river… CONTINUE READING
