The study of fluvial dynamics tries to draw up a balance of transfer, which permits to explain how the characteristics of a flow and the sediments transport are linked.

Film 1 – Measure of the characteristics of a river, on the ground.
Film 2 – Experience on a reduced model – Formation of meandering rivers.
Film 3 – Experience on a reduced model – Formation of braided rivers and modelizations.
