>> Back to Hydromorphology Surveys <<

Geo-RHS is the geomorphology component bolt on to RHS. It largely targets features and dimensions that relate to the processes of sediment transport in the channel and floodplain. Geomorphology is inherent in RHS surveys but is limited in scope and does not extend to the floodplain or consider the wider catchment features. Updated field survey forms are now available. The information will be used in tandem with RHS data to develop indicators of channel and floodplain status, naturalness, and modification.
