Author: National Rivers Authority
Document Type: Monograph
Annotation: EA additional title info: final report
This project was intended to examine the data holdings of NRA Anglian Region relating to coastal and estuarine areas. The definition of these areas is problematic. Whilst the area could normally be defined by taking Mean High Water as the maximum extent of the study, many of the drain systems of the Wash, Broads and Essex Estuaries are tidal well inland. NRA has had difficulties in defining where coastal and estuarine survey methodologies should give way to river corridor survey methodologies. Frequently tidal sections of river have been surveyed using river corridor survey methodology rather than coastal survey methodology. To avoid confusion we have defined the project area on the basis of this change in survey methodologies. The data from river corridor surveys of tidal reaches of rivers have been ignored. The project addresses only information held by NRA's Conservation function and does not include invertebrate data or fisheries data held by other sections of NRA.
