There have been significant technological advances in many areas of rainfall runoff assessment since the 1987 update. As such, 21 revision projects were designed as part of the ARR 2016 Update with the aim of filling knowledge gaps.
The outcomes of the projects assisted the ARR editorial team to compile, write and edit chapters of the ARR Guideline. Additional projects were added for testing of the design methods and the document publishing.
Steering and Technical Committees have been established to assist the ARR editorial team in guiding the projects to achieve desired outcomes.
Revision project reports and other information is available for download from this site.
