This document analyses the Geomorphological Audit of River Ure. This Geomorphological Audit will identify the sediment supply, storage and transport within channel reaches and to identify how these relate to past and present management processes at a catchment and river channel scale. The technique is used to investigate perceived management problems prior to remedial actions or capital works and when planning rehabilitation or restoration. The Geomorphological Audit forms a component of fluvial geomorphological assessment techniques developed for the Environment Agency. This sequence consists of Detailed Catchment Baseline (DCBS), Fluvial Audit (FA), Dynamic Assessment (DA) and Environmental Channel Design (ECD) assessment.
