Abstract : This report describes the development of a rigorous set of analysis procedures useful for identifying significant effects resulting from Army activities on aquatic ecosystems. Application guidelines and examples of these procedures are provided. The analysis procedures include techniques for organizing pertinent environmental information, simulation of spatial and temporal variations in water quality, and prediction of impact significance.
