To understand the key hydraulic drivers of fine sediment accumulation in gravel beds
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.

Conference Paper
Full-text available
We present a summary of the works published in Casas-Mulet et al 2016. They consist on the assessment of the ecohydraulics field of research using all available proceedings of the biennial International Symposium on Ecohydraulics for the last two decades. Through the use of Natural Language Processing (NLP), we provide a deep analysis of a longitud...

Understanding flow-sediment interactions is important for comprehending river functioning. Fine sediment accumulation processes, in particular, have key implications for ecosystem health. However, the amount of fines generated by intragravel flows and later accumulated in gravel streambeds may have been underestimated, as the hydraulic-related driv...

Bioturbation activity by macroinvertebrates in freshwaters may influence the hyporheic exchange processes in river systems. In this study we focussed on understanding how the upward conveyor macroinvertebrates Lumbriculus Variegatus may impact the hyporheic processes through physical alterations of the sediment structure. We aim at investigating; (...

The biophysical processes influencing rates of hyporheic exchange are nuanced and not well understood. On the one hand, bedforms are known to promote advective pumping, increasing exchange rates in systems with bedforms compared to those without. By contrast, fine sediment infiltration into stream beds decreases permeability and porosity by cloggin...

Vertical and horizontal fine sediment accumulation during fluctuating flows: outcomes from flume experiments
Article
Full-text available
We assessed how the emerging field of ecohydraulics research has changed over two decades by examining the proceedings of the biennial International Symposium on Ecohydraulics. By using Natural Language Processing (NLP) in word usage, this paper provides a deep analysis of a longitudinal dataset and enables us to test more detailed questions than p...
