- Gravel Bed Rivers and Disasters -
In keeping with previous experience, session topics will cover a wide area, only few directly relevant to the workshop sub-theme of disasters. We have chosen this theme not merely because Japanese gravel bed rivers experience many and frequent disasters, nor because other countries have them, but also because the Kyoto University Disaster Prevention Research Institute will be hosting the workshop at the Uji Campus and at its Hodaka Research Station, together with the Laboratory for Erosion Control, Kyoto University.
