STREAM BANK MONITORING

Why a stream bank monitoring programme ?

This monitoring programme was developed in order to record :

– stream bank change (gradiant, course etc.) over time in a retired area with no stock access.

– Vegetation development and growth in the newly planted area.

Protocol :

The protocol consists in taking every year in January a series of photos at 2 different photo points identified and GPSed. A protocol has been developped for each site including bearing, frame, angle etc for consistency in the monitoring. These sites are located above the stream level to allow a better view point over time.  Photos are laminated and stored for records and further analysis
