TOTAL WATER RESOURCES RESEARCH FUNDING MINUS CATEGORY XI (AQUATIC ECOSYSTEM MANAGEMENT AND PROTECTION) FUNDING

When funding for Category XI is subtracted from the total water resources research funding, the late 1990s funding is lower than the mid 1970s funding with high confidence, even when the uncertainty in funding levels is 50 percent (see Figure C-13).
