Webinar: Championing MoRPh Estuaries

Hear project partners sharing their updates and interests in using MoRPh Estuaries in their locations.

We ourselves are keen to hear about what monitoring or training will be most helpful in your estuaries and tidal river reaches.

Taking a catchment based ‘source to sea’ approach has often met with challenges in tidal river reaches, especially for gathering effective data and evidence to help understand, protect and improve estuarine marginal habitats.

The Environment Agency’s 3Cs Championing Coastal Coordination project aims to build connections between stakeholders and volunteers in river catchment and coastal partnerships by recognising and highlighting the invaluable role of partnership work in protecting and improving our transitional waters and thereby supporting biological diversity of our rivers and oceans.

The 3Cs MoRPh Estuaries project aims to help catchment and coastal partners and volunteers to gather and build evidence and knowledge of physical habitats and processes that will complement and aid interpretation of other monitoring data such as key species or plastics etc.

Designed for citizen scientists and professionals to assess the physical habitat of estuary margins, the MoRPh Estuaries survey complements the national Modular River Survey enabling whole catchment monitoring and appraisal in a consistent way from non-tidal freshwater through to the tidal saline reaches and estuaries.

Following a successful pilot in 2022 (see MoRPh Estuaries storymap) 3Cs MoRPh Estuaries project partners will be delivering a Webinar on 17th April to share news of progress, partner case studies, plans for scaling up and opportunities for free training and support for physical habitat monitoring and integrated analysis.

All information shared with us will help inform the support we can provide for your activities and the establishment of future regional MoRPh Estuaries hubs.
