Where along a river's length will vegetation most effectively stabilise stream banks?
This paper describes the scale analysis approach as applied to the Latrobe River in Gippsland, Victoria, Australia. It illustrates a structured decision-making approach for assessing the role of vegetation in stream bank erosion at different points throughout a catchment. Three bank-erosion process groups are identified : subaerial preparation, fluvial entrainment, and mass failure. Finally, the AA. explore the combined effects of vegetation and erosion domain to locate those sites where vegetation has the most potential to effectively stabilise the banks against continued high rates of erosion
