A model for identifying the vulnerability of streams and rivers to land use-induced changes

A model for identifying the vulnerability of streams and rivers to land use-induced changes

Landscape Research 22(2): 209-224

This model considers three types of spatial information: sources of land use-induced change; intensity of drainage within watersheds; and sensitivity of drainage basins to change. The model also demonstrates the use of a Geographic Information System (GIS) and its application.
