Role of the disturbance for creating and maintenance of habitats in the Tagliamento River, Italy

Laboratory of Socio and Eco Environment Risk Management, Department of Urban Management, Graduate School of Engineering
Place of stay: The Tagliamento River, Italy
Term: September 12, 2012 – September 25, 2012
The goal of this internship was to detect the abundance, richness and distribution of aquatic macroinvertebrate with the environment were influenced by flooding. The Tagliamento River provided the opportunity to study the effect of flooding on geomorphic features under more or less natural conditions. This survey carried out from 12th to 25th September in Cornino and Flagogna of Tagliamento River, and other North of Italy’s river, e.g. Piage River, Adige River, branch of Roncolo River and Brenta River. I surveyed abiotic environmental habitat conditions and biotic macroinvertebrate. In addition, we visited Prof. Walter’s laboratory in Trento University. The hydro-geomorphic experiment of braided channel and discussion with Prof. Walter and student allowed me to understand about braided riverbed and ecosystem in terms of geomorphologic view. I felt huge natural and natural power by pristine river and other Alps’ river. I will show roles of the natural hazards, e.g., flood and debris flow for creating and maintenance of habitats in river ecosystems including results of this survey.
