“State of the Art” Panel Papers

The FLOW 2008 conference included a panel discussion on the “State of the Art” in instream/environmental flow science, policy, and public dialogue, respectively. The panelists and moderator prepared papers in advance that were briefly summarized at the conference and submitted as a “featured collection” to the Journal of the American Water Resources Association after the conference.

We thank Brian Richter, Geoffrey Petts, Larry MacDonnell, and Mark Smith for their hard work and insights in preparing these papers.
