Abstract:

This technical note describes a method for verifying the representativeness of mean-value and extreme-value water quality monitoring locations. Recommended techniques are illustrated using data collected with the total dissolved gas monitoring system on the Columbia and Snake Rivers. This technical note shows how statistical techniques can be applied to the design of monitoring systems to ensure that data collected are representative and thus scientifically defensible.
