Junjian DENG*

Junjian DENG (2019-2022) Fine sediment dynamics over an alternate gravel bar system in a harnessed alpine river Supervisor: Benoît Camenen (Irstea Lyon) Doctoral school: MEGA (Mécanique Energétique, Génie civil, Acoustique). The objective of this PhD work is to better understand the fine sediment dynamics (erosion/deposition) in engineered alpine rivers, and its impact on the morphodynamics …

Lorris GOND*

Lorris GOND (2018-2021) Determination of transverse mixing coefficients in a shallow water wandering  gravel-bed river : application to the Durance River Supervisors: Emmanuel Mignot (LMFA), Jérôme Le Coz (Irstea Lyon) Doctoral school: MEGA (Mécanique Energétique, Génie civil, Acoustique). Transverse mixing coefficients are key to predicting the efficiency of pollutant dispersion in rivers. While most studies …

Nicolas NOCLIN (2019-2022) Role of hydraulic forcing on fluvial sedimentary environments; hydraulic modeling approach coupled with sedimentary and geophysical studies Supervisors: Thierry Winiarski (ENTPE, Lehna), Brice Mourrier (ENTPE, Lehna), Jérôme Le Coz (Irstea Lyon) Doctoral school: Chemistry Lyon The human actions, particularly over the last century, have caused many disturbances on the sedimentary regime of …

Shashank GUPTA*

Shashank GUPTA (2019-2022) Laboratory experiments on fine sediment erosion and deposition in an alternated bar system and its impact on bar morphodynamics. Supervisors: Céline Berni (RiverLy, Hydraulics) & Benoît Camenen (RiverLy, Hydraulics) Ecole Doctorale: MEGA, Lyon An alternate bar system is a typical morphological pattern that appears in rivers characterized by a significant sediment input …


Yassine KADDI*


Matteo DARIENZO (2017-2020) Real-time Bayesian estimation of dynamic stage-discharge models Supervisors: J. Le Coz (RiverLy, Hydraulics), B. Renard (RiverLy,  Hydrology) & M. Lang (RiverLy, Hydrology) Ecole Doctorale: TUE (Terre Univers Environnement), Grenoble River discharge time series are established using ‘rating curves’, which are models with discharge as output and stage and possibly other monitored parameters …
