Part of: Water Forum '86: World Water Issues in Evolution

Abstract:

A sound determination of Instream Flow requirements is facilitated by the use of a physical habitat versus streamflow relationship and the analysis of instream flow benefits produced when alternative instream flow criteria are applied. These benefits can be compared with those derived from diversionary uses to obtain the most beneficial allocation of water resources.
