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 - Yes

Criteria 3: Milestones Criteria - Incomplete: The proposal accomplishes all the objectives within a one year time frame. This seems very aggressive but we believe it can be done. We are concerned about the applicability of derived criteria for turbulence given the variability in the system with environmental and structural variability.

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:
Adequate
Date:
Jun 18, 1998

Comment:

ISRP reviewers consider the proposal well written, but expressed concern about the validity of extrapolations from laboratory fish and models to field situations. In effect, do fish demonstrate the same behavior in laboratory and stream settings? The study should take steps to offer that assurance.
