European Geosciences Union General Assembly 2019

Vienna, Austria

Rivers and their catchments are characterized and influenced by a range of physical, chemical and biological processes. These processes are in a constant state of flux, varying across both temporal and spatial scales, and are regulated or enhanced by anthropogenic activities, including but not limited to water abstraction, weir creation/removal, dredging and agriculture. Understanding of the hydromorphological and ecohydrological impacts of these activities/ approaches and so, wider socio-economic implications, remains largely rudimentary.

River Rally 2019
