This is the journal paper that used SCIMAP to investigate the use of ‘Participatory Action Research’ to work with stakeholders in addressing environmental issues. “Going… Read More »Participatory Action Research in physical geography with SCIMAP

I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Geography and Co-Director of the Institute of Hazard, Risk and Resilience at Durham University. My research focuses on hydrological dynamics, simulation of environmental processes and water-based risks. These water-based risks include diffuse pollution impacts on water quality and projected climate change impacts on water resources, low flows and flooding.
Managing multiple non-point pressures on water quality and ecological habitat: Spatially targeting effective mitigation actions at the landscape scale
Sim Reaney, American Geophysical Union Fall Meeting 2014 Abstract Catchment systems deliver many benefits to society and ecology but also produce a range of undesirable… Read More »Managing multiple non-point pressures on water quality and ecological habitat: Spatially targeting effective mitigation actions at the landscape scale
SCIMAP can be run across large catchment (2000 km2 +) as well as for targeted sub-catchments (e.g. < 1km2). The normal grid resolution is 5m… Read More »What are the scale and data requirements for SCIMAP?
SCIMAP is based on the identification of locations of critical source areas (Heathwaite et al. 2005). within the landscape. These locations are based on the… Read More »What is the scientific basis of SCIMAP?
SCIMAP aids spatial targeting by identifying the locations in the landscape that are most likely to be contributing to an observed diffuse pollution issue. SCIMAP… Read More »How SCIMAP aids the spatial targeting of diffuse pollution mitigation measures
SCIMAP is a risk-mapping framework designed to identify where in the landscape diffuse pollution is most likely to be originating. SCIMAP does not try to… Read More »Basic description of the SCIMAP framework
