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.

STREAM-AQUIFER INTERACTION OF A LARGE ALPINE RIVER WITH HEAT-TRACER METHODS AND HYDROLOGICAL MODELING
Author : GIOVANNI RAVAZZANI , DIEGO CURTI , MARCO MANCINI & RENZO ROSSO
The contribution of groundwater to streamflow in Alpine catchments is still poorly understood, despite it may heavily impact hydrological balance and stream habitats. This work presents the results of a field campaign based on heat tracer methods to assess the hyphoreic flow during low flow period of a large Alpine river in Italy. These measurements were employed to validate a distributed hydrological model that can be used to asses river-groundwater interaction in both low and high flow conditions. The results show that groundwater may have a relevant role during low flow period by increasing river discharge and during floods by subtracting direct runoff that is stored in river banks.
