Technical Reports 1997

Recognising the importance of communicating our scientific results and research outcomes, CSIRO Land and Water is committed to e-publishing all Technical Reports produced since the division's formation in 1997. Technical Reports are produced by scientists to document work in progress, record data or summarise material before it is published in the established scientific literature or in situations where journal publication is not appropriate. Missing numbers refer to reports in preparation. 

To open these files you will require Acrobat Reader, which is free from the Adobe Website. Contact the Communication Group if you have any problems downloading these publications. Hardcopies may be available for posting.

CSIRO Land and Water's publication outputs are often published as part of another series such as Water for a Healthy Country Flagship, Heartlands, Australian Water Conservation and Reuse Research Program.
