ERP 2 training seminar/workshop
The Estuary Guide website is being enhanced as part of Phase 2 of the Estuaries Research Programme (ERP). The two workshop seminars held in November 2007 introduced and explored the draft version of the Estuary Guide and the benefits arising from the ERP deliverables through the resources and tools contained within the Estuary Guide.
All presentations have been converted to PDF format to reduce file size.
Note: The presentations were current at November 2007 and content may have been superseded.
