In 2012 we lost Jean Jacques Peters, former engineer of Flanders Hydraulics Research (1964 till 1979) and international expert in sediment transport, river hydraulics and morphology. As a tribute to him we have created potamology, a virtual memorial archive whose aim is to preserve and disseminate his way of thinking and his morphological approach to river problems all over the world.This archive provides four modules, each with its specific information set relevant to Peters’ work. Where available and if not confidential, there will also be access to the full text. In dialogue with Peters’ family we continue to make his life’s work accessible.
WMO Regional Training Workshop on Sediment Transport Measurements, Regional Association for Asia and Pacific Islands (UN R.A. II and V; 1990)
WMO requested J.J. Peters to organise and act as instructor at the 3-week long Regional Training Workshop on Sediment Transport Measurements for the UN regional association for Asia and the Pacific Islands. The training workshop was held at the Chinese International centre for sediment studies (IRCTES); the other instructors were Douglas Glyson (US-GS Reston, USA), Laslo Rakoczi (VITUKI, Hungary), Long Yu Quian (Yellow River Commission, China) and Fang Duo (University).
