This data set contains field measurements of ship waves and topography of a riverbank of the Meuse river in the Netherlands. It was used to study bank erosion processes in navigable rivers (search for the related publication). The methods used are structure from motion photogrammetry with UAV aerial photos, RTK-GPS, aerial photos for bankline delineation, and Acoustic Doppler velocimeter (ADV) to measure ship waves. The data also include simulated bank profiles from a model developed to predict bank retreat produced by ship waves. Finally, there is a video showing typical ship-induced waves at the location of the surveys.
