About the archive

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.

Abstract
In 2006 a second disposal test (500.000 + 900.000 m3) was executed near the Walsoorden sandbar, using the traditional clapping technique to dispose the dredged sediments. An intensive monitoring programme (+ evaluation criteria) were defined based on the experience of the first test. The monitoring consisted of MBES, sediment transport and ecological monitoring. Most of monitoring was performed by external contractors (contracts with Flemish government).

JJP was a member of the steering committee that performed the follow-up of the monitoring and the results.

In 2010 FHR evaluated this second disposal test and organized a workshop where the results were presented.
