Friday, April 19
Invited Papers: The following 11 papers were invited by the Coordinating Committee to demonstrate the current condition of the Clark Fork River. The flow of the subject matter parallels the flow of the river; the first paper discusses problems at the river source and the last paper summarizes studies from the source downstream to Lake Pend Oreille. The papers are technical and provide the most current data available at the time of the symposium. Abstracts from the invited papers are available here in a single PDF file .
