Section 4. Objectives, Tasks and Schedules

Objectives and Tasks

Objective Task
1. Provide PATH modeling groups with sound information with which to contruct, calibrate and validate the models. a. Identify, assemble and characterize data and estimates that may be used in run reconstructions, passage model construction and operation.
2. Determine levlof support for key asumptionsandhypotheses a. Critically review and synthesize biological information pertaining to certain key assumptions and hypotheses incorporated in the analyses. In some cases BPA may request alternative analyses to complement the standard model analyses employed in PATH.
3. Reconfigure models to reflect most up to date, sound information a. Provide modelers with broad-based syntheses of topics important in the construct, calibration and validation of their tools. Emphasis is on fish behavior and survival during downstream and upstream migration.
4. Develop tractable and instructive adaptive managment experiments to resolve critical assumptions and hypotheses. a. Participate in the design of research and monioring strategies with other PATH members.

Objective Schedules and Costs

Objective Start Date End Date Measurable Biological Objectives Milestone FY 2000 Cost %
