Abstract

Intermittent rivers and streams are under increasing threat from water resource development and other stressors but remain understudied, even though they account for more than half of the length of all the world's flowing waterways. To protect and sustainably manage these systems there is a need to improve our understanding of their hydrology as it drives critical ecological processes. However,characterising their hydrology is difficult as they are often located in remote areas with limited gauging infrastructure. This thesis examined the ability of multispectral imagery to characterize hydrology using a case study, the lower Fitzroy River, in north Western Australia.
