This paper presents the contribution of digital surveying techniques for the estimation of fluvial sediment transport. The aim is to create predictive models able to minimize or reduce the hydrogeological hazard, especially before or during critical meteorological events. The case study is the Caldone stream, a watercourse located in the municipality of Lecco (Italy). Structure-from-Motion photogrammetry and terrestrial laser scanning techniques were used to collect metric data about the morphology of the riverbed. Data acquisition was carried out to create a digital model of visible and submerged parts of the riverbed. Then, a second area with a sedimentation pool was selected to monitor the variation of the depth induced by progressive accumulation of sediments. As the pool is constantly covered by water, a low-cost bathymetric drone was used coupling the measured depth values with total station measurements to track the drone. Finally, the paper describes the implementation of an on-line data delivery platform able to facilitate retrieval of heterogeneous geospatial data, which are used in the developed numerical model for sediment transport. This service aims at providing simplified access to specific map layers without requiring knowledge about data formats and reference systems.

Abstract

This paper presents the contribution of digital surveying techniques for the estimation of fluvial sediment transport. The aim is to create predictive models able to minimize or reduce the hydrogeological hazard, especially before or during critical meteorological events. The case study is the Caldone stream, a watercourse located in the municipality of Lecco (Italy). Structure-from-Motion photogrammetry and terrestrial laser scanning techniques were used to collect metric data about the morphology of the riverbed. Data acquisition was carried out to create a digital model of visible and submerged parts of the riverbed. Then, a second area with a sedimentation pool was selected to monitor the variation of the depth induced by progressive accumulation of sediments. As the pool is constantly covered by water, a low-cost bathymetric drone was used coupling the measured depth values with total station measurements to track the drone. Finally, the paper describes the implementation of an on-line data delivery platform able to facilitate retrieval of heterogeneous geospatial data, which are used in the developed numerical model for sediment transport. This service aims at providing simplified access to specific map layers without requiring knowledge about data formats and reference systems.
