To produce a regional-level evaluation of the effects of linear infrastructure on surface and near-surface hydrology
Type of Study:
A combination of field-based assessments, GIS techniques, and data analyses.
This reference provides an example of where mining roads can produce surface drainage impacts.
Conditional inference trees (classification and regression trees)
Great Western Woodlands, Western Australia
Response variable :
Multiple response variables to describe soil erosion and water pooling
Woodland, shrubland, succulent steppe, etc.
Over 1000 km of linear infrastructure surveyed, within 160, 000 km2 region.
