Guidebook of Applied Fluvial Geomorphology

The guidebook collates and summarises the results of geomorphological R&D projects performed for the Environment Agency and its predecessor the NRA during the 1990s. During that period the use of geomorphology in river engineering, management, conservation and restoration increased dramatically. In the UK, the application of geomorphological science and practice now forms a regular part of projects involving flood protection, fisheries, conservation, recreation, environmental protection and river restoration.

Rehabilitation of Inland Waters for Fisheries

Many rivers, lakes and other inland waters have been modified and degraded by human activities. Rehabilitation of degraded systems and mitigation of impacts of ongoing stresses are needed to preserve ecosystem services and fisheries, and are of a high priority if the aquatic biodiversity of inland waters is to be conserved. A number of technical solutions for rehabilitation and mitigation are available to restore habitat diversity, provide for environmental flows and ensure longitudinal and lateral connectivity within such systems.

NCR days 2001, from sediment transport, morphology and ecology to river basin management

NCR organises once a year the so-called NCR days, where on two consecutive days scientists present their ongoing River studies. The emphasis is on ongoing studies in order to maximise the exchange of ideas and experience between the participants and to provide the researchers a sounding board for their study approach and preliminary results.

Rehabilitating Danish Streams (1995)

A new Watercourse Act entered into force in Denmark in 1982. prior to then, vigorous efforts have been made to improve the quality of the water flowing in our watercourses so that they could once again become good habitats for fish and aquatic invertebrates.

A Rehabilitation Manual for Australian Streams 2 (2000)

Over the past two hundred years we have physically and biologically degraded many Australian streams. Catchment managers at the end of the millennium face two daunting tasks: how to minimise further damage to rivers and streams, and how to repair the damage that has already occurred. We can return natural values to our waterways.

 

This manual is designed to help those professional managers who are accepting the challenge of rehabilitating the physical and biological condition of Australian streams.

UK National Ecosystem Assessment

The UK National Ecosystem Assessment (UK NEA)  is the first analysis of the UK’s natural environment in terms of the benefits it provides to society and our continuing economic prosperity. The project has produced an independent and peer-reviewed assessment of the state and value of the UK’s natural environment and ecosystem services, identifying what has driven change observed in the natural environment and the services it has provided over the last 60 years, and what may drive change in the future. It includes an investigation into the monetary and non-monetary value to the economy, society and individuals from various ecosystem services, including how some of these may change in future.
