The listing of ELA publications contains 1108 entries. They are subdivided into six categories according to type. Within each category, the publications are listed alphabetically by author. You may download the complete listing in either of two self-extracting file formats, or as an Acrobat PDF file, by clicking the appropriate page icon or button-bar, below.

Most (676) of the entries are peer-reviewed journal papers. These have been published in scientific journals, are often highly technical, and primarily are intended be read by other researchers. Another large (158) section lists technical and data reports that provide comprehensive descriptions and summaries of data collections and methodologies. Not many of these have been produced in recent years, so most of these date from the 1970's and 1980's. The third section lists 105 published presentations at scientific symposia and conferences, and chapters of books. Hundreds of other presentations have been given over the years, but most have not been published. The fourth section lists 116 masters and doctoral theses that are based on research focused at the ELA. A small section lists several books that have been authored or co-authored by ELA personnel, or make significant reference to work carried out at the ELA. A final section lists magazine articles, newsletters, and other publications that are intended more for a general readership.

Every human should have the idea of taking care of the environment, of nature, of water. So using too much or wasting water should have some kind of feeling or sense of concern. Some sort of responsibility and with that, a sense of discipline.” - The 14th Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyatso quoted in Peter Swanson’s Water: The Drop of Life, 2001
