R implementation of the Ecological Risk due to Flow Alteration (ERFA) method

This application is an implementation of the Ecological Risk due to Flow Alteration (ERFA) method in R language. This method assesses the potential impact of flow change on river ecosystems.

Although the code was developed with a geographical focus on southeast Asia (example datasets are provided for the Mekong River Basin), it can be applied for any location where baseline and scenario monthly river flow time series are available.

Provenance & quality

This application comprises a series of R scripts and also uses the Shiny R package. It was developed using R version 3.4.2 and Shiny version 1.0.5 and has been tested up to R version 3.6.1 and Shiny version 1.3.2 on both the Windows and MacOS operating systems. At a minimum it requires the installation of R but it can also run under R Studio.
