Title: Exploring the D-RATIN tool – studying inland navigation potential using a rapid assessment tool.

Abstract for the presentation:

In this lunch talk, river studies in data-scarce areas will be reviewed. Specifically, the usability of the D-RATIN tool (Deltares Rapid Assessment Tool for Inland Navigation) in such studies is evaluated. This tool, as its name implies, aims for a quick assessment of the navigability potential of a river based on open source data. Finally, the complications of the potential scarcity of data and subsequent solutions to these complications will be discussed as well.
