Assessing the health of Ephemeral Rivers

Assessing the geomorphic and hydrologic aspects of ephemeral rivers is an important part of measuring their health. Ideally, a few accurate, repeatable, rapid measurements would describe their condition and allow changes to be assessed over time. Researchers and managers have developed a large number (hundreds) of hydrologic and geomorphologic indicators which are summarised in this review. Often a suite of indicators, developed by a management agency, will be applied to streams in a (more)...

Assessing the potential for algal blooms in clear water phase tropical rivers
