ARIDFLO Project - Building Our Knowledge of LEB Rivers - Executive Summary

2004

Introduction

The following project summary documents the principal results, conclusions and recommendations of the ARIDFLO study. It is intended to be accessible to a broad audience, and so is deliberately lightly referenced - extensive referencing of the scientific literature is presented in the full version of the Scientific Report, and full citations are presented therein. Even without appendices, the main text of the Scientific Report is a very lengthy document (>600 pages), and so a concise and readable summary of the project's findings was considered essential. It is not possible to simplify all scientific concepts to lay English without losing valuable information and precision, and so this document inevitably had to strike a balance between accessibility to all potential readers and those with some technical training or experience.
