Hydromorphological monitoring

Tools for water and sediment dynamics

Fluves develops innovative tools for hydrodynamic and sediment monitoring projects.

We use state-of-the-art measurement equipment to solve water management problems.

Our specialty are fiber optic sensors, which are able to measure temperature and pressure measurements over long distances (+ 50 km).

Fluves uses two innovative monitoring tools:

  1. A highly accurate load cell, capable of continuously measuring sedimentation processes on many places in any water body (load cell).
  2.  With distributed temperature measurements (DTS), the bathymetry of any water system can be continuously measured (bathymetry project VMM).

In combination with standard instruments, such as ADCP or OBS, these tools enable to characterise the most dynamic and complex morphological processes.
