Iberia

October 10th, 2017 No comments

Catchments of the Iberian Peninsula. This may be an appropriate regionalization for ecological studies and resource management. In fact, we used a catchment-based approach in a study of fire regimes [1]. Other current approaches for regionalization include the one based of the movement of people instead of the movement of water (e.g., for USA, [2]). In any case, this is a nice colourful image of Iberia!
