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.
Within the framework of a Long term Vision for the Scheldt estuary, the innovative idea of morphological management was proposed by the independent Port of Antwerp Expert Team (Peters, Parker, Cunge, Stevens, Meade). The new disposal strategy in the Western Scheldt near the Walsoorden sandbar was suggested as a pilot case
