Description

Published by the American Geophysical Union as part of the Water Resources Monograph Series, Volume 3.

To a considerable extent this work might be taken to be a report of progress in the analysis of recreational use of water and the implications for water resources planning. There has been considerable progress in recent years in the development of methods, some of which are hopefully reflected in these pages, and increasingly there are likely gains to their greater application. A major purpose here is to present some of the issues and methods in a somewhat systematic way so as to provide better appraisal of both problems and progress.
