Establish the river flow response to horizontal (e.g., river width variations, bends, groins, etc.) and vertical bathymetric variability (e.g., channels and shoals, bars and dunes) with GPS-equipped surface drifters, dye sensors, an Unmanned Surface Vehicle (USV), and an Unmanned Underwater Vehicle (UUV) in two different riverine environments (e.g. unidirectional and bi-directional).
Validate Delft3D river flow model with these unique observations and subsequently examine the sensitivity of Delft3D river flow model to bathymetric variability in general under a wide range of forcing conditions using an ensemble approach.
