Project IDTitleDescription
9008000 Columbia Basin PIT-Tag Information System [PSMFC] This UW project requires high quality PIT-tag data made available through PTAGIS (Project 9008000). Project produces data queries tailored to PTAGIS to extract PIT-tag information to analyze survival data in various formats.
9102900 Supplementation and Survival of Fall Chinook in Snake River [BRD/USGS] BRD uses the statistical models and computer software (e.g., SURPH) for survival estimation developed, enhanced, and maintained by this UW project.
9302900 Survival Estimation for Dam/Reservoir Passage [NMFS-CZES] Provides direct technical and analytical support to NMFS field studies. Specifically, responds to NMFS requests to enhance survival estimation capabilities incorporated in Program SURPH. Responds to requests to NMFS to investigate alternative analyses.
8712700 Smolt Monitoring by Non-Federal Entities [PSMFC] Technical assistance and technology transfer of statistical software to Nez Perce Tribe to assist their survival analyses.
9503400 EW Program Support [BPA] Technical assistance to BPA EW staff related to performance of internal assessment requirements; subject area conduct and analysis of Columbia River Basin survival studies.
