|Toelichting (Engels)||In this research the morphodynamic functioning of lowland stream the Dommel prior to channelization was investigated by using Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR), coring and Optically Stimulated Luminescence (OSL) dating. In the study area, located south of St. Oedenrode in the Netherlands, remnants of four meanders are preserved. GPR was applied to determine whether and in which direction these bends migrated in the past. The coring data provided insight in the lithology and lithogenesis of the floodplain. OSL dating was applied to reconstruct how fast and in which period the meanders evolved. The planform evolution of the Dommel at this location could be reconstructed by combining these data.|
