Research Themes

Biophysical classification: Classifying riverscapes across northern Australia

Biophysical classification: Classifying riverscapes across northern Australia

A universally accepted system of classifying riverscapes (i.e. a geomorphic river classification scheme) does not exist for the tropical north of Australia.  This project has developed such a classification and so provides an understanding of the diversity of riverscapes in northern Australia. It has provided a rational basis for extrapolating limited, site-specific data collected in the TRaCK program to the rest of the wet-dry tropics.
