[2.07 MB] Conceptual Models and Hypotheses for the TRRP_FINAL.pdf
TRRP (2009) Conceptual models and hypotheses for the Trinity River Restoration Program. Final report prepared for the Trinity River Restoration Program, Weaverville, CA. 130 pp.
This document was originally prepared as a Backgrounder on Trinity River Restoration Program (TRRP) conceptual models for a meeting (Adaptive Environmental Assessment and Management (AEAM) Framework Workshop 1) held October 13th-15th, 2004 in Eureka, California. Leading up to this workshop, a team of about 16 people worked with ESSA Technologies Ltd. (ESSA) between May 2004 and August 2004 to prepare this document, which was distributed to the 55 participants who attended the October 2004 meeting (after three earlier rounds of review). The goal of AEAM Framework Workshop was to improve both individual conceptual models and their integration, setting the stage for development of well-focused monitoring and adaptive management plans in the winter of 2004 and spring 2005.
Subsequent to the October 2004 workshop, this document has been updated to reflect changes to these conceptual models and to summarize feedback from meeting participants. Hence, this report serves 3 purposes:
1. To document ‘state-of-the science’ conceptual models for the TRRP;
2. To summarize the main points from workshop participants; and
3. To initiate more formal development of monitoring/modeling plans and Adaptive Management protocols for the TRRP program.
