Estimates of bedload transport capacities and its relative controls on a reach-by-reach basis along the Rhône river, France

Abstract : The Rhône River represents a highly complex fluvial system owing to its basin characteristics and tectonic and climate histories. Superimposed on this natural complexity are intense changes in land use within the basin and management works in the main channel over the past 150 years. The sum of these modifications have drastically altered the delivery of sediments to the main stem and their transfer downstream. We present the results of work in progress that is part of a large-scale multidisciplinary study aimed at understanding how sediment is mobilised and transferred between successive reaches from Lake Geneva to the Mediterranean sea. A main goal of the study is to establish a physically-based classification of reaches based on transport dynamics for targeting restoration projects.
