Sediment Dynamics In Urban Systems - An Holistic Approach To Surface, Drain And Riverine Particulate Transport
The aim of this research project is to quantify and provide an improved understanding of the movements of particulate materials through urban systems. The project includes:
Archive data, field observations and integrated modelling are being used in collaboration with Unilever, the Environment Agency and Yorkshire Water. The project has an holistic approach to particulate transfers through the urban environment, from entrainment at source to eventual deposition within and beyond the immediate town or city. This broad approach is providing a means of focusing on important interfaces between urban and rural systems.
The project is closely linked to a Urban Pollution Management survey of Bradford, Yorkshire and it is complementary to other large scale research.
