This is an exemplary outstanding proposal that continues the high standard of work and proposal writing previously presented by the sponsors. They are to be commended on a project that is clearly laid out, is marching steadily along toward its well-defined objectives, and is setting a standard for such work in the interior Rocky Mountain West. It should serve as a model for proposal writing and reporting of results for an ongoing proposal. The relationships to other projects section is exceptionally strong. The project history is very nicely done, with a truly impressive set of reports and manuscripts in press and already published.
