River Basin Management 2011

6th International Conference on River Basin Management including all aspects of Hydrology, Ecology, Environmental Management, Flood Plains and Wetlands
25 - 27 May 2011, Riverside, California, USA


Wessex Institute of Technology, UK


River Basin Management 2011 is the sixth conference in this series which marks the growing international interest in the planning, design and management of river basin systems.

The first River Basin Management conference took place in Cardiff, UK in 2001, followed by a meeting in Las Palmas, Gran Canaria (2003) and another in Bologna, Italy (2005), the fourth in Kos, Greece (2007) and the fifth in Malta (2009).

The conference aims to communicate recent advances in the overall management of riverine systems, including advances in hydraulic and hydrologic modelling, ecology, environmental management and flood forecasting.

In recent years, significant advances have been made in the development and application of software tools for predicting flow, water quality, sediment transport and ecological processes in riverine systems. River Basin Management 2011 will provide the ideal forum for practitioners and academia to highlight the latest developments in this field and to discuss the experience of applying such tools to practical riverine problems.
