Project IDTitleDescription
9105100 Monitoring and Evaluation Statistical Support [UW] Critical - 9105100’s “RealTime” statistical juvenile salmon migration timing models require input presently only available from 9601900 services. Models are used during migration season in support of weekly hydrosystem operations.
8910700 Statistical Support for Salmonid Survival Studies [UW] Critical - 9601900 integrates regionally-distributed data sets for input to 8910700 survival analyses.
8910800 Monitoring and Evaluation Modeling Support [UW] Critical - 8910800’s CRISP juvenile salmon hydrosystem survival model requires input presently available only through 9601900 services. Model is used during migration season in support of weekly hydrosystem operations.
940330 Fish Passage Center [FPC] Critical - FPC provides passage indices, transport numbers, and hatchery release data to be integrated into second-tier database
9008000 Columbia Basin PIT-tag Information System [PSMFC] Critical - PSMFC provides PIT-tag tagging and detection information to be integrated into second-tier database
9207104 In-season Operations Technical Management Team (TMT) Support-Corps funded. Critical - 9601900 integrates primary data from Corps of Engineers, PSMFC, and FPC for retrieval, processing, and presentation to TMT to support weekly hydro-operation decision. 9207104 prototyped Internet TMT support systems now used by Corps.
8810804 StreamNet (aka CIS) StreamNet is the FWP data archive which could (but does not) provide the integration of historical and inseason observations provided by this proposal.

Duplicates FPC and StreamNet
Recommendation:
Adequate
Date:
Jun 18, 1998

Comment:

This is an adequate proposal rated in the upper midrange of the set. The proposal does not clarify why the problems inherent in the primary databases are not fixed instead of adding a second tier (this proposal). There is little explanation of how the 2nd tier is done. The objectives are not the same in table and text. The work is not so much collaborative as competitive, but this is all laid out and stated in terms of the need to cooperate. This project seems to be the result of frustration with other projects not doing what was expected.
