Short descriptionImprove conditions for Salmonid migration in Columbia/Snake rivers by modifying the flow field using a system of flow modification devices known as vanes. Flow-field, with and with-out the vanes, will be simulated using a 3-dimensional numerical model.

Reviews and recommendations

This information was not provided on the original proposals, but was generated during the review process.

Recommendation:
Date:
May 13, 1998

Comment:

Comments:

Criteria 1: Technical Criteria - Yes

Criteria 2: Objectives Criteria - Incomplete: Clearly define the objective of the study. Describe the anticipated changes in river flow with the vanes and tie this to the biological aspects of the fish migration. The impacts on other migrants and resident fish should also be considered.

Criteria 3: Milestones Criteria - Yes

Criteria 4: Resources Criteria - Yes


Recommendation:
Do Not Fund
Date:
May 13, 1998

Comment:

Questionable management value. Proposal was either incomplete but did not provide adequate information to determine whether management criteria were met or complete but did not meet critical management criteria.
Recommendation:
Inadequate proposal, adequate purpose
Date:
Jun 18, 1998

Comment:

Reviewers say the study should be related to other projects and exhibit coordination with existing literature and investigators. The ISRP suggests the proposal needs a more explicit discussion of evaluation methods and inference procedures.
