[EN] Geomorphological diversity of rivers in the Amazon Basin

13 enero 2022

In this paper, published in Geomorphology, we developed a framework to define a river classification protocol adapted to large rivers with application to the Amazonian rivers using two interlocked hierarchical spatial scales: the landscape unit at the basin scale and the reach unit at the local scale. Our framework relies on open-source geospatial data, reproducible and automatic methods to extract the geomorphological attributes of the river network, and on statistical modelling. We then described the spatial patterns of obtained river types within the basin.
