James is a fluvial geomorphologist who has been involved in large scale river condition assessments for the past fifteen years. He moved to Australia after studying riverbank erosion processes in the UK, climate change in Syria and Jordan, then arctic melt processes in Svalbard, Iceland and Greenland.
He has been on research teams that have devised methods for assessing the physical form of rivers across Victoria, Tasmania and the Murray Darling-Basin. He has created methods to use high resolution remotely sensed data over large areas to report on geomorphological processes and the physical condition or rivers. These include determining the processes of erosion that occurred during the 2011 Queensland floods, and reporting the condition of 29,000 km of Victorian rivers as part of the Index of Stream Condition. Currently he is working on the assessing the recovery of river systems in Victoria to historic gold mining and developing method to remotely assess the effectiveness of river management.
