The research and the valorization of the research within the Future Floodplains project is divided into several work packages (WP) that are strongly interconnected. The diagram below shows this coherence between the WP's. More information about each work package can be found on the various subpages.
Within work packages 1 to
3, the geomorphology, hydrology and ecology of the valley areas are
studied intensively and numerical prediction models will be developed. WP 4 will collect information on long-term river and floodplain dynamics to validate the various models. In WP 5, various scenarios will be run with the numerical models to simulate the impact of future socio-ecological changes in floodplains. The
scientific models are integrated into work package 6, which, in
response to the needs of different social actors, is designed to be
"decision support system".
