    in stark terms

    Hi teachers!

    ...the tragedy that has subsequently unfolded reaveals in stark terms how "solutions" to water-resource problems can go astray if our knowledge of a region's hydrology and geology is imcomplete...

    I don't know what "in stark terms" means. I only guess it means "eloquently" or "very clearly" judging by the context.

    Is my guess okay?

    Regards,

    OP
