MoRPh

MoRPh

MoRPh is a tool developed by Queen Mary University of London and the Environment Agency, for citizen scientists to easily record information about local physical habitat conditions, at a scale that complements ARMI and similar river biological monitoring activities. It provides a means of monitoring and interpreting physical habitat of short lengths, or ‘modules’, of river (10m to 40m) through automatically generated indices whose changes can be tracked through time and across space.
The MoRPh field survey is a rapid recording method that requires no specialist equipment and can be carried out from the riverbank and the MoRPh web tool receives, stores, analyses and maps physical habitat information from MoRPh surveys.
