Habitat Restoration

ICER scientists have a wide range of expertise in fluvial geomorphology, including modelling fine sediment accumulation, fluid flow, dissolved oxygen and salmon egg survival in spawning gravels. Aquatic biologists also work closely with geomorphologists and engineers to evaluate and quantify the physical and ecological processes that govern effective river restoration to understand the principle underlying mechanisms.
