C. Review of the Peer Review Report

A peer review panel was formed in 1989 to review the summary of research for 1988 and proposed research for 1989 conducted by Oregon State University for the National Park Service. This panel was continued and the membership expanded to review the research conducted in 1989 by Oregon State University. The peer panel’s purpose was to evaluate the research design, methods, results, analyses, interpretations, and conclusions from materials presented to them. The panel was to assess if the data and analyses support the conclusions of the studies.

The panel met on January 14-15, 1991 in Corvallis, Oregon, with Dr. Charles R. Goldman as chairman. The panel was provided with the draft report, and other papers and materials. The panel received oral presentations from Robert Collier, Jack Dymond, and associated investigators covering the written material and describing new data and interpretations available after the report was written. Panel members were:


Dr. Charles R. Goldman, Chairman and Professor of Limnology, Division of Environmental Studies, University of California, Davis, California
