Short Term Trend of Vegetation Removal Estimation by Aerial Photograph Analysis and Flood Flow Simulation

Deen Islam, Yuji Toda, and Tetsuro Tsujimoto
Abstract—This study purposes to estimate the spatial distribution of vegetation removal on a gravel bed and braided river, called the Tenryu in Central Japan. Aerial photograph and flood flow simulation are used to observe the vegetation change. High annual flood flow promotes vegetation removal and low flood flow in the preceding year accelerates vegetation invasion. Numerical simulation of flood flow can estimate the spatial conditions of vegetation wash out or vegetation remaining with minor misjudgment. Inclusion of sediment transport equation in the simulation may reduce the misjudgment during computation.

Index Terms—Bed shear stress, drag force, flood flow, vegetation.
