IAHR, founded in 1935, is a worldwide independent member-based organisation of engineers and water specialists working in fields related to the hydro-environmental sciences and their practical application. Activities range from river and maritime hydraulics to water resources development and eco-hydraulics, through to ice engineering, hydroinformatics, and hydraulic machinery.

An automatic and continuous monitoring system for floating-litter transport in river and its application to field survey in mogami river
is are primarily supplied from inland areas; however, few monitoring data exist for floating-litter
transport from rivers to the ocean due to the absence of appropriate monitoring methods. In this study, we developed an
automatic and continuous monitoring technique for floating-litter transport L in rivers by using an image monitoring and
processing technique in which different types of litter (scatter-type and mass-type) are separately analyzed. The results
indicated that L evaluated by the present methods was in good agreement with the observed data in the Mogami River,
Yamagata, Japan, demonstrating the fundamental performance of the present monitoring method.Form Required :
