Abstract

In small urban rivers, a quantitative study of how many are related to what extent environmental factors such as riverbed materials and other physical environmental factors and the flow rate was classified from the perspective of the landscape has not yet been established. In order to evaluate this environmental restoration project in the Kamisaigo River, Fukuoka Prefecture, Japan, the research study about the basic relationships of habitat and the physical environment was performed. Here we provide a frame of flow ecological habitat evaluation and are measured at 50 m terrain. The results of habitat landscape are as follows; we create a diagram of the depth-velocity-substrate distribution, Reynolds number as a-biotic environment was the best criterion for objectively classifying the rapid/riffle, run and glide respectively, and Froude number was the best criterion for objectively classifying the run, slack/shallow and scour/pool respectively.
