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.

Based on the positive results of the 2 in situ disposal tests, the concept of morphological disposal was integrated in the disposal strategy in the Western Scheldt during the 3rd deepening of the navigation channel. During the environmental impact assessment (EIA) this alternative with the morphological disposal along sandbars was evaluated as the most environmental suited alternative. Based on the results from the EIA, further research to optimize the disposal strategy was performed at FHR. JJP was a member of the research team, and performed a role of external advisor and revisor within this study.
