FLUVER2 River Gradient Modelling

FLUVER2 is a 2D River Gradient linked to a semi-3D Terrace modelling framework. In the following sections we will regularly publish updates on case studies from all over the world (Netherlands, France, Spain, UK).

Our 2D and semi-3D framework for the FLUVER2 and LIMTER-TERRAS models are available for research (contact us) involving river profile or river gradient analysis for long term modelling, and the modelling of development, preservation and possible altitudes of river terraces. See references to case studies below for the potential of our FLUVER2 methdologies!
