New at HOORC's Library: Watershed health monitoring
The introductory section of Watershed health monitoring : emerging technologies makes the point that successful monitoring programmes depend on a foundation of four crucial components: political support, sound scientific assessment techniques, community education and involvement and a long-term cost recovery framework. The book goes on to describe and explain a model for monitoring watersheds that avoids common pitfalls in reporting, performance evaluation and assessment methods. Case studies look at how tools like advanced remote sensing technologies can help. You can find the book in HOORC's Library.
