WELCOME TO THE PROJECT
RIVERTEMP is an Erasmus+ project, aimed at education in identification and classification of temporary rivers to fight climate change
Temporary (drying) rivers are defined as watercourses…” that they can dry out during some period of the year. More than 50% of the world river network demonstrates that non-perennial rivers are the norm and not the exception on Earth. The project seeks the identification and classification of them.
Will help achieve the goal general idea of creating teaching and learning tools focused on in temporary rivers and the management of water resources. Besides, the activities aim to generate a paradigm shift towards a new conceptual vision of rivers, as well as support the identification and their categorization through the development of a open and easy-to-use software tool for “mapping of multitude of temporary rivers”, widely applicable to describe the non-perennial river systems that are present from climate alpine to the arid and semi-arid environments of Europe.
Provide users with tools informatics and MOOC for the identification and categorization temporary rivers, a GIS-based repository for classified satellite images that can generate virtuous circles for the implementation of a “RT crowd mapping”, potentially carried out by people all over the world, not just by project participants.
The researchers, professors and students involved will work in this, providing comments and modifications of both the computer tools such as the structure and content of the material and training platform:
