Spatial analysis of anthropogenic river disturbance at regional and continental scales: identifying the wild rivers of Australia
A method for assessing anthropogenic river disturbance is described. The grid-based spatial modeling procedure computes indices of disturbance for individual stream sections. These indices rank streams along a continuum from near-pristine to severely disturbed. The method couples geographical data, recording the extent and intensity of human activities known to impact on river condition, with a Digital Elevation Model (DEM) used for drainage analysis. It was developed to produce the first...[Show more]
