Tomsett, C, Leyland, J, Darby, S, Gernon, T, Parsons, D, Hincks, T, Wolstenholme, J (2024) Vertical Mixing of Suspended Sediment in Big Rivers using ADCP data and Machine Learning, Sediment is an intrinsic component of the fluvial network, supplying material for floodplains and coastal landforms which provide resilience during flooding and storms. As a result, an understanding of the fluvial processes that control how much sediment moves through our river systems, and how this varies across the globe, is of fundamental importance. For the purpose of estimating sediment delivery through the fluvial network, it is often assumed that rivers are well mixed through their vertical extent. However, empirical data reveals that there is frequently large variability in the concentration of sediment through the water column. Better understanding this variability is of interest to the geomorphological community to help explain variations in sediment transport and improve estimates of sediment flux. In this research, we utilise a collection of Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler (ADCP) data from large rivers across the globe to investigate variations in the vertical distribution of suspended sediment. Calibrations of ADCP backscatter to Suspended Sediment Concentration (SSC) from the wider literature are used, alongside median grainsize and acoustic frequency, to create a Machine Learning (ML) model from which SSC from uncalibrated ADCPs can be estimated. This new ML model is subsequently implemented to explore the variations in the vertical mixing of suspended sediment both temporally and spatially. This variability is explored to identify the importance of catchment characteristics in determining variations in suspended sediment concentration within the water column. Comparison of multiple river systems and their catchment characteristics, both between sites and through time, enables the identification of key attributes which exert a greater control on this variation through the water column. Subsequently, this leads to an improved understanding of sediment flux through the river system, whereby knowing the variation in sediment concentration within the water column can help to better calibrate current methods of estimating flux..

Wolstenholme, J, Skinner, C, Milan, D, Thomas, R, Parsons, D (2024) Basin-scale hydrological response to leaky wooden dam installation, Leaky wooden dams are commonly incorporated into rivers as part of restoration efforts to increase channel roughness and force geomorphic complexity, slowing the flow in the headwaters and aiming to desynchronise flows to reduce downstream flood risk. These structures are (dis)connectivity agents, working to decrease longitudinal connectivity whilst simultaneously increasing floodplain connectivity and encouraging water storage. Most numerical modelling of leaky wooden dams at the basin scale does not consider sediment transport at spatial resolutions fine enough to appropriately represent the dams as individual features. Due to the paucity of both spatially- and temporally-distributed sediment transport data, there is also a high level of uncertainty regarding the influence of leaky wooden dams on basin hydrology over time, yet it is important that we consider the geomorphological influence of these structures and how their evolution influences flood hazard, particularly given that extreme storms are becoming increasingly common. This study implements a heuristic behavioural approach within the landscape evolution model CAESAR-Lisflood to assess the broad influence of leaky wooden dams on a 32 km2 prototype catchment with a mixture of first, second and third order streams. A 20-year spatially-distributed modelled rainfall time series capable of representing convective storms (2020–2040 obtained from the 2018 UK Climate Projections) was used to drive the hydrology across a suite of simulations where leaky wooden dam location in the river network was systematically varied. Installing leaky wooden dams only on first order streams desynchronised flow and reduced downstream flood peaks by up to 50% whilst retaining the greatest volume of water in the catchment when compared to other stream order combinations. Conversely, installing leaky wooden dams on only third order streams increased peak discharge by over 10% for 22% of storm events owing to the presence of fewer structures and therefore reduced opportunity for desynchronisation of peak flows from the various sub-catchments. Most importantly we detail how storm sequencing, and the capacity of the active channel, plays an important role in exacerbating flood risk, with frequent, yet relatively minor, storms increasing peak discharge despite the presence of leaky wooden dams. As such where leaky dam interventions are installed plays a critical role in their efficacy in mitigating flood peaks and should be given more consideration by practitioners..

Parsons, KJ, Lloyd Williams, A, Skinner, C, Parsons, DR (2022) Immersive storytelling and the power of using 360 to amplify the experiences, agency and action of children and young people facing flood risk, <p>Flood hazard is projected to at least double by 2050 as a consequence of the impacts of climate change, meaning many more societies and communities will need to be able to mitigate and adapt to the resultant increase in flood risk.</p><p>One often overlooked aspect of flooding is the experiences of children and young people who also deal with disasters first-hand and who often have a very different viewpoint than adults.  In 2014 researchers (Lloyd Williams et al, 2017) worked with flood-affected children, using creative and participatory methodologies to explore their experiences and tell their story. The research gave the young people the opportunity to express their voice on this issue and take action, including the production of Children’s Flood Manifestos that called for changes in UK flood management. A key feature of these manifestos was the call for all children to receive flood education as part of the school curriculum.</p><p>The research reported herein takes up that call by seeking new and innovative ways to engage young people with flood education. As part of the work, the children’s flood stories have been brought to life through the use of immersive storytelling and 360 technologies. In the <em>Help Callum</em> and <em>Help S</em>ali immersive videos, generated via the project, the viewer gets to experience the children’s stories first-hand and develop an understanding of some of the issues that young people face during flood events. As part of the immersive journey the viewer is asked to think about what would have helped the children and how we could all be better prepared for flooding. To complement these films, we have co-created a suite of learning resources with teachers, young people and England’s Environment Agency, including links to the National Curriculum and the Sustainable Development Goals, exploring how the videos can be used to communicate and contribute to better understanding, and subsequent action, in response to flood risk among a new generation of young people.</p><p>The paper will show you how it is possible to not only communicate your science but also demonstrate how working with young people can help to build agency, self-esteem and be a means to taking meaningful action.</p><p>Lloyd Williams, A, Bingley, A, Walker, M, Mort, M. and Howells, V, 2017. “That’s Where I First Saw the Water”: Mobilizing Children’s Voices in UK Flood Risk Management. <em>Transfers</em>, <em>7</em>(3), pp.76-93.</p><p> </p>.

Parsons, K, Jones, L, Halstead, F, Le, H, Vo, TT, Hackney, CR, Parsons, D (2022) 2020 Vision: Using transdisciplinary approaches in understanding climate (in)action through youth led participation in mitigating hydrological extremes, We are the midst of a climate emergency requiring urgent climate action that is, as yet, unforthcoming both on the scale, and at the speed, commensurate with the associated hazard and risk. This paper presents work that considers this current state of inaction and explores how we might understand the underpinning processes of attitudinal and behavioural change needed through the emotional framework of loss.This inaction is also explored through the additional lens of the year 2020, a year of tumultuous social change created by the COVID–19 pandemic. The article draws parallels with and looks to learn from the ways in which the collective loss experienced as a result of COVID–19 may offer a sense of hope in the fight to adequately address climate change but how meeting the Sustainable Development Goals will require climate injustices to also be addressed. We argue that appropriate leadership that guides widespread climate action from all is best sought from those groups already facing the loss of climate change and therefore already engaged in climate-related social action and activism, including youth and Indigenous peoples.In this regard we present work from an ongoing project based within the Red River catchment (Vietnam), which is already experiencing enhanced hydrological extremes. Resultant floods, landslides and soil erosion in the upper region is having impacts in communities, whilst relative sea-level rises in the region are affecting the frequency and magnitude of flooding. Our research is working with young people and their communities, alongside social and environmental scientists in partnership, to identify imaginative ways to mitigate these climate change challenges and foster action. The paper will outline how this youth-led approach explores how local, traditional, and indigenous knowledges can develop understandings and strengthen local and societal resilience, incorporating peer-to-peer, intergenerational and cross-/inter-cultural forms of collaborative, and socially just, learning.
