Rio Negro Lower Catchment Flood Forecasting - FloodWatch

Set-up and Configure the MIKE FLOODWATCH for the lower basin of the Negro River. This river causes large flooding in the capital city of the Province of El Chaco, Resistencia and neighbouring areas. For this purpose it has been implemented flood protection embankments, several pumping stations and a control structure (pump and gates) to discharge the water into the Parana River. The end user and who will operate the system is APA - Administración Provincial del Agua de la Provincia del Chaco.

Caravelas Dredging Strategy

Aracruz Celulose S.A. Brazil has established a timber loading port in the river mouth at Caravelas. The dredged approach channel silts up with a higher rate than predicted in earlier studies where only sand movement was studied. In this study mud and silt transport were included. Mathematical modelling has been used as a tool during the planning and design of the navigation channel at Caravelas. The objective of the present model is to describe the deposition of sand and mud in the channel. The modelling efforts include the application of advanced hydrodynamic models (MIKE 21 FM) of tides, currents, waves and sediment transport.
