The Christiaan Brunings Lecture brings together the scientists, practitioners and managers of rivers and estuaries. The keynote lecture is given by a leading international scientist, and a second lecture is given on the same topic by a nationally recognised expert from an institute or industry. This takes place annually in Universiteit Utrecht, a focal point of past and future river and delta research and within walking distance of the Metronome, a novel experimental setup where rivers and estuaries are created at a scale of about 1:2000 by the group of Prof. Maarten Kleinhans.
The 4th Christiaan Brunings Lecture was a great success. The full lecture and its powerpoint slides have been recorded and can be found on LectureNet. On this page you can find more information about the speakers and the abstracts for the last lecture as well as all previous lectures.
