Other budget explanation

Schedule Constraints: Spatial data currently available may not be adequate; the data may have poor resolution, be the wrong scale, or be poor quality. Weather and water conditions on the Columbia river may delay collection of remotely sensed data necessary for Objective 4


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 - Incomplete: The likelihood of developing an assessment of pre-impoundment habitat is unclear from the proposal. Without this the proposal does not have clear objectives.

Criteria 2: Objectives Criteria - Incomplete Conditioned on ability to address comment on criteria #1.

Criteria 3: Milestones Criteria - Yes

Criteria 4: Resources Criteria - Incomplete: The proposal is not clear relative to the costs of LIDAR and proposes to use side scan sonar but does not identify a purchase or cost.


Recommendation:
Do Not Fund
Date:
May 13, 1998

Comment:

urgent. Proposed activities would not produce significant near-term survival improvement nor risk a lost opportunity within the next 1-3 years.
Recommendation:
Adequate
Date:
Jun 18, 1998

Comment:

ISRP reviewers commended this quest for data to apply to potential drawdown scenarios, expressing mild surprise that such data are not already available. They also noted that the proposal does not discuss the behavior of water.
