Highlights•Evaluation of XBeach numerical scheme in fluvial environments.•Benchmarking of the code to laboratory experimental results (flume and dam break).•Discussion of code performance in fluvial and transitional (estuarine) environments. AbstractThe dominant processes of sediment transport and morphological changes are different between rivers and coastal areas. In many situations rivers, estuaries and coasts need to be modelled together in an integrated way. This paper investigates the capability of a freely available, open source, coastal morphodynamic software (XBeach) to estimate sediment transport and morphological changes in fluvial environments. Four benchmark tests were designed to test code performance and included simple unidirectional flow cases, complex topography, fluvial flood flows (hydrographs) and dam break scenarios (fast transient, supercritical flow fields). The results were compared to laboratory experimental results or simulations results from industry standard software. Analysis suggested that the coastal morphodynamic code is able to simulate sediment transport and morphological changes in a fluvial environment, but there are limitations to what can be modelled and the accuracy to which they are modelled. General morphological trends are replicated reasonably well by the code however specific bed forms and rapid erosive responses are less well modelled. Suggestions are made for applicability of the code, code improvement and future work.

This paper introduces some experiences with developing mobile phone demonstrator applications for water quality information management using the Google Android platform. The work presented is part of an EU research project named LENVIS (Localised ENVironmental and health Information Services for all). The applications are focused on delivery of water quality information related to outdoor bathing waters in two case study areas in the Netherlands. Both monitored and modelled water quality information is delivered via mobile phone applications that are integrated with web applications. The applications also have functionalities for collecting user feedback on bathing water quality from the field and integrating it with the information provided by the water management authorities. Initial test results of the applications with targeted user groups are also presented, which demonstrate the promising potential of this technology for water quality information management applications and they indicate potential use in other application areas.
