River Bank Erosion Prediction

River, Delta and Coastal Morphology Division

Carries out studies on river, delta and coastal morphology using a unique method based on RS-GIS technology including spatial and hydro-morphological information to predict and monitor morphological changes and bank erosion of rivers. It also conducts morphological and planform analyses and optimizes dredging for maintaining navigation in the major rivers.
