Project aims

The following aims should be achieved during the SEDDON project:

  • Achieve a scientific basis to analyze problems concerning sediment transport in Austria and Hungary
  • Development of integrative management solutions
  • Comparison between the different problem fields Upper/Middle Danube
  • Harmonized measuring and modeling systems, standardized field reports and manuals
  • Development of practical management solutions
  • Evaluation of the existing laboratory equipment and measuring systems
  • Construction of a research channel with a free-flowing discharge of 10 m³/s

In the future project results and management strategies should be made available for all Danube countries (within the project DREAM more information).
