Abstract

The AA. establish a quantitative functional hydrogeomorphological typology of river reference types in the French Upper Rhine basin with the requirements of the European Water Framework Directive, defined in terms of hydromorphological quality and prospects for river restoration. Four ecoregions (i.e. hydrogeomorphic units) based on climate, relief, geology and landscape history, were delineated by expert opinion and validated by independent variables. Results for 2 ecoregions, marly calcareous loess-covered hills and crystalline Vosges mountains, are given as examples
