Mapping Flow-Obstructing Structures on Global Rivers
To help store water, facilitate navigation, generate energy, mitigate floods, and support industrial and agricultural production, people have built and continue to build obstructions to natural flow in rivers. However, due to the long and complex history of constructing and removing such obstructions, we lack a globally consistent record of their locations and types. Here, we used a consistent method to visually locate and classify obstructions on 2.1 million km of large rivers (width ≥30 m)doi:10.17615/m1gt-j168 fatcat:b4z2k3xv5vfwbdvqfazb3n4csi
