Detail

Environment Agency staff undertake wetland impact assessments for a variety of reasons including groundwater abstraction and flood risk management. This project set out to improve our conceptual understanding of wetland systems, and to review the appropriate methods and tools for assessing anthropogenic impacts on wetlands. The research includes freshwater wetlands and floodplain areas, but excludes coastal areas.
