5.1.8 Monitoring Options

Objective Indicators/Measurements Types of Monitoring Information Source
Net reduction in accelerated erosion across the Region, in particular in
  • Steep hill country
  • In coastal sand country on the west coast and coastal frontal dunes on the east coast
  • Areas adjacent to estuaries
  • Areas of high intensity rainfall or areas of light unconsolidated soils, where there is insufficient vegetative cover, insufficient surface water control, or intensive cultivation
  • The banks of rivers and lakes and wetlands across the Region
  • Catchments of estuaries that are areas of significant conservation value on the Coromandel Peninsula
  • Karst and cave systems.
