Abstract:

The design of water quality surveys is being investigated by an interdisciplinary team using systems analysis techniques. The class of surveys under study are nominally fifteen days in length and designed to characterize pollutant types and levels at the site being monitored. With the conduct of the survey restricted to a relatively short time period, it is imperative that the amount of useful data collected be maximized. The resources available to collect data are limited and a best sampling and analysis program has to be chosen to maximize data collection, a difficult problem. This report reviews the first years progress in formulating and implementing models for munitions manufacturing processes, site topology, measurement resources and a resource matching program. Also included is a survey of current data handling procedures and recommendations for improvements. Modified author abstract
