River restoration in Norfolk

UCL teams up with QMUL to remove old flood embankments

River restoration in Norfolk

On the 9th March a site in the middle of the reaches of the River Glaven in North Norfolk will see the removal of 1970s flood embankments as part of restoration work.

For the last two years a team from UCL and QMUL Geography Departments (Carl Sayer, Hannah Clilverd, Julian Thompson, Kate Heppel, Jan Axmacher and Tori Shepherd) have been studying the hydrology, chemistry and ecology of the river-floodplain system to understand the effects and success of the proposed restoration. Carl, Hannah and Tori will be at the Glaven on Tuesday 3rd March to mark out the site and undertake some final measurements before the big event.
