Title: The physical character of rivers and streams in the UK and Isle of Man
Author: Environment Agency
Document Type: Monograph
Abstract:
This summary fact-sheet contains selected information derived from a major baseline survey of rivers and streams throughout the UK and the Isle of Man carried out during 1994-1997. Data were collected using the River Habitat Survey (RHS), a new method for assessing the physical character and quality of river habitats and the modifications affecting them. The development of this method and the main findings of the survey are described in "River Habitat Quality: the physical character of rivers and streams in the UK and Isle of Man", published in May 1998 by the Environment Agency, in collaboration with the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) and the Environment and Heritage Service, Northern Ireland.
