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.

Research on the feasibility of the alternative disposal strategy Walsoorden, more
The new idea of the alternative disposal strategy was investigated by Flanders Hydraulics Research. The Walsoorden sandbar which had been assigned by PAET as a pilot case was the study area. The research methodology as well as the evaluation of the feasibility of the disposal strategy based on the research results was performed by PAET.
The study of FHR was funded by PROSES, and a second opinion was performed by an international expert group (Berlamont, Hamm, Stive, van der Kreeke, Dyer). The second opinion confirmed the results of the feasibility research.
