Comprehensive system analysis of issues affecting the waterways needs information going over and beyond the generally available data provided by the waterways information services. This is why the BAW is developing concepts for special field measurements. Scientific findings are obtained about individual physical waterways-related processes that differ greatly in space and time. These then provide the basis for examining and estimating special hydrological conditions of the waterway systems, the impact of ship-induced currents and waves for example on the stability of bank protection structures, together with the interaction between ship and waterway. The results of these special field studies are indispensable for calibrating and validating hydromorphological simulation models. Given the complexity of the physical processes being examined, various standard sensors are integrated as components in optimized measuring techniques on the basis of innovative measuring concepts.
