Viparelli Group

Description: The Viparelli Group studies problems in which sediment transport, erosion and deposition play an important role, including mixtures of sediments with different characteristics such as size and density. The group tries to understand how sediment grains interact with flowing water and how they move and deposit. Sediment transport studies help the group understand how rivers, estuaries, deltas and submarine channels change in time and space due to natural and human-induced causes.
