Advances in Image Velocimetry for Sensing River Flows

This Research Topic seeks to publish articles that demonstrate the utility of image velocimetry techniques for sensing the fluvial environment; that advance the development of image-based techniques; and inform deployment practices for the sensing of river flow processes. Of particular interest are research articles and commentaries where image-based techniques have: • Advanced fundamental understanding of fluvial processes (e.g. flood flow dynamics) • Been used as the basis for predictions of fluvial processes (e.g. bank erosion, sediment transport) • Led to the advancement of industrial, or management practices (e.g. river flow quantification, eco-hydraulic assessments, hazard assessment, assessment of engineering structure performance). In addition, research articles that report technical advances are also welcomed. These may include, but are not limited to: • New approaches for image-based sensing of river flows • Assessments of the applicability and accuracy of existing workflows and techniques • Advancement of existing image velocimetry techniques • Methodological refinements and recommendations for best practice https://www.frontiersin.org/research-topics/17302/advances-in-image-velocimetry-for-sensing-river-flows
