A meta-analysis of 65 research studies was conducted to determine the degree to which they met the assumptions of the Impervious Cover Model (ICM) and supported or did not support its primary predictions. Results show that the majority of research published since 2003 when the original model was released has confirmed or reinforced the basic premise of the ICM. A reformulated conceptual impervious cover model is presented.
