An analysis of Lake Victoria vegetation and shoreline monitoring data

This report investigates the vegetation and shoreline sediment monitoring data collected at Lake Victoria (1998-present). The dataset was analysed to: investigate if any overall changes in vegetation or sediment erosion and deposition have occurred over time and space; assess the effect of hydrologic regime on five target species of shoreline vegetation and on shoreline erosion and deposition; and to assess whether the presence of vegetation reduces erosion and promotes deposition.
