J. River Condition Assessment & Recovery Potential


Synopsis of Topic

Stages 2 & 3 of the River Styles framework will be covered in this lecture and the basis for afternoon activities.

Why We're Covering It

Being able to assess river condition and recovery potential are keys to developing realistic management and/or restoration options.

Learning Outcomes

This topics helps us with the following learning outcomes for the workshop:
  • Through lectures, laboratory exercises, field visits and discussions, develop a working knowledge of Stage 1 of the River Styles framework (river character and behaviour, analysis of catchment-scale river patterns) 
  • Show how measures of river condition vary for different types of river (i.e. what measures are important; what we measure against; emphasis upon asking the right questions … use of qualitative understandings alongside quantitative measures)
