MMCP Collaboration (MMCP) is a project supported by the Joint State Governments and the Murray-Darling Basin Authority to generate and adopt freshwater ecological knowledge through collaboration, to maintain research capability and contribute supporting science to underpin the Basin-Wide Watering Strategy.
This synthesis paper is a response to a question poised by the Murray-Darling Basin Officials Committee (BOC), in relation to weir pool manipulation. The objectives of this theme within the MMCP is to help the BOC address specific questions as they arise. These question will have relevance to the on-going management of Basin Assets.
