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.

In 1997, Delft Hydraulics approached J.J. Peters to participate in the India Hydrology Project as their sediment specialist. This project aimed at improving, among other things, the field surveying capabilities of the Central Water Commission of India and more specifically for the acquisition of reliable and useful sediment data. The contractors were Delft Hydraulics and DHV from The Netherlands. A field survey manual was written and training given.
