Abstract

An important aim of the comparative geomorphology of estuaries project was to increase understanding of the environmental characteristics of near-pristine estuaries and provide a reference dataset for quantifying changes in habitat patterns in modified systems. It was anticipated that this aim would be fulfilled by identifying key geomorphic characteristics of the near-pristine systems that may be used to benchmark the current condition of, and quantify change within, 'modified' waterways. Here we provide examples of some very promising results obtained from our preliminary analyses of the geomorphic habitat area information contained within the GIS maps available on OzEstuaries.
