Abstract:

The report contains the proceedings of a colloquium which was held in Park City, Utah on 16-18 October 1972 to explore various means of incorporating aesthetic considerations into the water resources planning process. The conference brought together a multi-disciplinary group of experts in the field of natural aesthetics in order to design a strategy to examine and develop the aesthetic opportunity sector of the straw man model. The straw man is heavily oriented toward computerized analysis, hence quantifying the aesthetic effects of water resource development alternatives was a primary topic of discussion during the conference. The report focuses on aesthetics and water resources development.
