Chapter
Although the costs of fish-related mitigation measures can play an important role in the adoption of mitigation measures, there is relatively little information about this aspect. This chapter presents an overview of the range of costs for different mitigation measures and compares their magnitudes. As many mitigation measures are adopted in combin...

Floods are among the most damaging of natural disasters, and flood events are expected to increase in magnitude and frequency with the effects of climate change and changes in land use. As a consequence, much focus has been placed on the engineering of structural flood mitigation measures in rivers. Traditional flood protection measures, such as le...

Water temperatures control life histories and diversity of aquatic species. Hydropower regulation, particularly in high head systems, alters natural water temperature regimes, which may have profound and long-term impacts on aquatic environments. Temperatures in bypass sections and reaches affected by residual/environmental minimum flows fluctuate...

The emerging Ecohydraulics field of research should, therefore,...

The paper demonstrates the use of Bayesian networks in multicriteria decision analysis (MCDA) of environmental design alternatives for environmental flows (eflows) and physical habitat remediation measures in the Man-dalselva River in Norway. We demonstrate how MCDA using multi-attribute value functions can be implemented in a Bayesian network with...

We implement a multicriteria decision analysis (MCDA) on environmental design alternatives for environmental flows (eflows) and physical habitat remediation measures in the Mandalselva River in Norway. This methods paper provides further documentation of the ecosystem service sub-models and their implementation in Hugin Expert software. We demonstr...

Flow regime alterations from hydropower regulation may impact fish populations. Impacts can be characterized using methods for mapping bottlenecks for different species life stages. Improving the understanding of such bottlenecks could provide a basis for mitigation measures. An integrated modelling approach coupling a salmon population model (IB-s...
Article
Full-text available
Despite that hydromorphological restoration projects have been implemented since the 1940s, the key to improve the effectiveness of future restoration measures remains a challenge. This is in part related to the lack of adequate aims and objectives together with our limitations in understanding the effects on the physical habitat and ecosystems fro...

Extreme, short-duration fluctuations caused by hydropeaking occurs when hydropower is regulated to cover demand peaks in the electricity market. Such rapid dewatering processes may have a high impact on the downstream biological conditions, particularly related to stranding of fish and other species. The present work analyzes these fluctuations usi...

Winter is an ecologically challenging season for ectothermic cold-water fish in natural streams because of reduced flow and freezing. Hydropower regulation in many northern rivers increase winter stream flow and temperatures, and reduce ice formation and surface ice cover. From a background review of knowledge about e.g. Atlantic salmon (Salmo sala...
Technical Report
In the seasonal climates of northern Europe and North America, water temperature variations are ecologically challenging for aquatic organisms in natural streams. In winter, low water temperature and ice conditions becall biological responses by aquatic species, whereas in summer water temperatures rise and may, in particular during daytime low flo...
Article
As part of the investigation of a new and optimized environmental flow regime in a regulated river (Mandalselva, Norway), a modeling study was conducted on the trade-offs between the production of Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) smolts and the production of hydropower. Impacts of alternative flow regimes on smolt production were examined under differ...

Early career researchers (ECRs) play a critical role in our increasingly knowledge-based society, yet they are the most vulnerable group in the scientific community. As a relatively young, interdisciplinary science, ecohydraulics is particularly reliant on ECRs for future progress. In 2014, the Early Careers on Ecohydraulics Network (ECoENet) was c...

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Special Report on Renewable Energy Sources represented a benchmark in the assessment of water consumption from electricity production. The numbers for hydropower ranged from very low to much larger than the other renewable technologies, partly explained by methodological problems. One of the methodologi...

Project
The Early Careers on Ecohydraulics Network (ECoENet) is a new international research network consisting of PhD students and early career researchers working within the interdisciplinary field of ecohydraulics. This research is critical to understanding the impacts of flood management, river regulation and climate change, among many other potential stressors on riverine ecosystems, as it informs sustainable development of river corridors and basins. ECoENet aims to develop a platform for ecohydraulics-related research training, to strengthen the identity and integration of its disciplines, and to mitigate some of the key barriers facing early career researchers. The network will further develop this platform through a series of steps: Outreach, Online presence, Key participation at Conferences, Mentorship, Training and Education, Research and policy exchanges, and Citizen science.
