The basin-scale, dynamic sediment connectivity model D-CASCADE, combines concepts of network modelling with empirical sediment transport formulas to quantify spatiotemporal sediment (dis)connectivity in river networks. The D-CASCADE framework describes sediment connectivity in terms of transfer rate through space and time while accounting for several hydro-morphological and anthropic factors affecting sediment transport.
Marco received his PhD in March 2022 at Politecnico di Milano, Advisor: Andrea Castelletti.
