Improving expert panel assessments through the use of a composite river condition index - the case of the rivers affected by the Snowy Mountains Hydro-Electric Scheme, Australia
A rapid process of water reform in Australia has seen governments rely heavily on 'expert' or 'scientific' panel advice for river condition and environmental flow assessments. These multi-disciplinary teams of scientists have enabled a quick and relatively inexpensive injection of science into what is often a data-poor decision process. However, expert panels suffer from several important drawbacks including a lack of transparency and repeatability, and unquantified uncertainty. In the case of...[Show more]
