                     REQUEST FOR DISCUSSION (RFD)
                   unmoderated group sci.geo.rivers

Summary:  Discusssion of geologic, climatologic, biologic, and engineering
          issues relating to rivers

Proponent:  Jeffrey Trust <[email protected]>
Mentor:     Ilana Stern <[email protected]>

This is a formal Request For Discussion on the creation of the newsgroup
sci.geo.rivers.  This is not a call for votes; do not vote now.

RATIONALE:

Studies of rivers involve many fields of study- work in this field is
done by fish biologists, civil engineers, geologists, hydrologists,
foresters, and many others.  It is desirable for those involved in
river studies to have an efficient and informal way to discuss issues
relating to rivers.  Other relevant Usenet newsgroups include
sci.geo.hydrology, sci.bio.ecology, and sci.engr.civil.  It is, in
part, the purpose of this proposed newsgroup to provide an
interdisciplinary discussion of river issues that is frequently absent
from each of these newsgroups.  Discussion of rivers takes place in
each of the three newsgroups listed above, but the discussion in each
group often focuses only on those aspects of river studies relevant to
that particular group.

The sci.geo.* hierarchy was chosen because it includes many Earth
science-related groups, not just those of geologic interest.  The
scope of this newsgroup is intended to be interdisciplinary, and the
sci.geo.* hierarchy is the best choice (short of creating a new sci.*
hierarchy).

CHARTER:  sci.geo.rivers

sci.geo.rivers is an unmoderated Usenet newsgroup for the discussion
of the geology, biology, and other aspects of the scientific study of
rivers.  This newsgroup will serve as a place for members of the
scientific community, and others interested, to discuss: 1) the
geologic processes related to rivers, 2) climatology, as it is related
to rivers, to include such topics as water supply and flooding, 3)
biologic issues, as they relate to rivers, to include such topics as
wildlife, forest, and human ecology, 4) engineering issues, as related
to rivers, to include such topics as the effects of human modification
(e.g., dams, revetments, and channelization), 6) drainage basin
management, including such topics as stream, estuary, and wetlands
protection and restoration, and 7) other topics not mentioned above,
but that have scientific relevance to rivers.

PROCEDURE:

This RFD has been posted in accordance with the Guidelines for Newsgroup
Creation.  Its language is based on previously submitted RFDs.

After a discussion period of 21 to 30 days, if there are no major
objections, an independent votetaker will post a Call For Votes (CFV)
to the same groups as this RFD.  The voting period will be at least 21
days.  If the proposed group passes by receiving 100 more YES votes
than NO votes, and at least twice as many YES votes as NO votes, it
will be created.

DISTRIBUTION:

The RFD is being cross-posted to the following relevant news groups:

news.announce.newgroups, news.groups, sci.geo.geology,
sci.geo.hydrology, sci.geo.meteorology, sci.geo.oceanography,
sci.bio.misc, sci.bio.botany, sci.bio.ecology, sci.bio.fisheries,
sci.engr.civil

Followup posts should be directed to news.groups.

Summary:  Science of rivers and lakes.

Proponent:  Jeffrey Trust <[email protected]>
Mentor:     Ilana Stern <[email protected]>

This is a second Request For Discussion on the creation of the newsgroup
sci.geo.rivers+lakes.

Changes from the first RFD:  Based on discussion, the proposed name was
changed from sci.geo.rivers to sci.geo.rivers+lakes, and the charter was
modified to include as relevant issues rivers, lakes, and other inland
freshwater bodies.

RATIONALE:

Studies of rivers and lakes involve many fields of study- work in this
field is done by fish biologists, civil engineers, geologists,
hydrologists, foresters, and many others.  It is desirable for those
involved in river and lacustrine studies to have an efficient and informal
way to discuss issues relating to rivers and lakes.  Other relevant Usenet
newsgroups include sci.geo.hydrology, sci.bio.ecology, and sci.engr.civil.
It is, in part, the purpose of this proposed newsgroup to provide an

VOTING PROCEDURE NOTES:

Standard Guidelines for voting apply.  One person, one vote.  Votes must
be mailed directly from the voter to the votetaker.  Anonymous,
forwarded or proxy votes are not valid; this includes votes generated by
WWW/HTML/CGI forms.

Vote counting is automated.  Failure to follow these directions may mean
that your vote does not get counted.  If you do not receive an
acknowledgment of your vote within three days, contact the votetaker
about the problem.  It's your responsibility to make sure your vote is
registered correctly.  Duplicate votes are resolved in favor of the most
recent valid vote.  Addresses and votes of all voters will be published
in the final voting results post.

The purpose of a Usenet vote is to determine the genuine interest of
persons who would read a proposed newsgroup.  Soliciting votes from
disinterested parties defeats this purpose.  Please do not distribute
this CFV.  If you must, direct people to the official CFV as posted to
news.announce.newgroups.  Distributing pre-marked or otherwise edited
copies of this CFV is generally considered to be vote fraud.  When in
doubt, ask the votetaker.
