1.1. Field trip (Lower Var)

The first Saturday of the face-to-face week of HydroEurope,  field trip was organized in the Var river catchment. Students met at 8 AM and during the morning discovered Var banks from Nice airport to Carros. Philippe GOURBESVILLE and Philippe AUDRA explained to us the past and the present situation of the lower Var catchment with its morphology, these thresholds and the vegetation. We could also observe the different apporaches used on the shore such as sugars or simple rocks. We discovered each advantages and disadvantages.
