Scientific Assessment of River Form and Flow: Baseline Information for Infrastructure Guidelines in the Peruvian Amazon

This project consists of the development of Best Management Practices or guidelines to quantify and characterize the structure of the water flow, sediments and how the morphology of the Amazonian rivers develops and their interrelation with biodiversity and communities, in order to predict the impacts of river-related infrastructure intervention.
