Other budget explanation

Schedule Constraints: No constraints are envisioned. The following two major milestones, and projected completion dates, are envisioned: 1.) Completion of measurements of scales, 12/1999 2.) Completion of assembling ocean condition data, 12/1999.

Comment:

Comments:

Criteria 1: Technical Criteria - Incomplete: The strategy of using scale pattern analysis to assess ocean impacts appears sound. The oceanographic parameters are too limited. The proposal only suggests using temperature and barometric pressure. This should be expanded to using indices of primary and secondary productivity. There also should be an assessment of density dependent and density independent factors.

Criteria 2: Objectives Criteria - Yes

Criteria 3: Milestones Criteria - Yes

Criteria 4: Resources Criteria - Yes


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:
Inadequate
Date:
Jun 18, 1998

Comment:

The statistical design, especially sample size, is inadequate. However, it is good that the description of sample size attempts to take into account previously collected data. The proposal does not include assurances that ocean conditions and relevant ocean studies will be correlated and analyzed in a justifiable manner. The proposal lacks details on methodology and tasks and does not adequately reference the vast amount of literature on analysis of scale patterns.
