BASEMENT: a not-so-basic simulation environment for river process modelling

Modelling river physical processes is of critical importance for flood protection, river management and restoration of riverine environments. Because of the continuous increment of computational power and the development of novel numerical algorithms, numerical models are nowadays widely and standardly used. The freeware BASEMENT is a flexible tool for one and two-dimensional river process simulations that bundles solvers for hydrodynamic, morphodynamic, scalar advection-diffusion and feedbacks with riparian vegetation. The adoption of a fully costless workflow and a light GUI facilitate its broad utilization in research, practice and education. In this seminar I introduce the different tools within the BASEMENT suite, present some domains of application and ongoing developments.
