1.3.1 Methods


The water-dependent asset register described in this report is a list of water-dependent assets identified for the bioregional assessment (BA) of the Arckaringa subregion. This section details the specific implementation to the Arckaringa subregion of methods described in the companion submethodology M02 for compiling water-dependent assets (Mount et al., 2015).

The methods involved (i) nominating and collating different groups of assets, (ii) determining the preliminary assessment extent (PAE) for the Arckaringa subregion, (iii) determining water dependency based upon multiple lines of evidence (including literature, remote sensing data and available mapping) and (iv) developing and compiling the water-dependent asset register.

The asset list for the Arckaringa subregion, prior to assessment of water dependence, contains 2373 assets that intersect the Arckaringa PAE, comprising 2239 ecological assets, 47 economic assets and 87 sociocultural assets.
