The philosophy of this book brings together selected
network design procedures that reflect upon the practical problem of monitoring
This text focuses on the network design aspects of water quality monitoring.
Network design is discussed in the context of stream and groundwater monitoring,
in particular. This book strives to enhance the design of water quality monitoring
networks through the use of statistical sampling design procedures and hydrological
considerations. Many of the principles are applicable to monitoring efforts
for lakes, reservoirs, or estuaries. A range of design techniques beginning
with the more basic (which have the largest number of assumptions) and concluding
with techniques that could be classified as intermediate are presented. Also,
advanced, and therefore statistically sophisticated techniques, are referenced.
Design of Networks for Monitoring Water Quality is an excellent
reference for the initial design or design refinement of a water quality monitoring
network. Reprinted 2000, WRP.
