This handbook provides a comprehensive overview of monitoring streams, lakes, rivers and estuaries. It contains information about physical, biological and chemical factors and analytical procedures.

It includes all information needed to establish a water quality monitoring program, and to interpret and understand the results obtained. The basics of waterway surveys, program planning, data analysis and reporting are also described.

This provides step-by-step instructions for water quality test procedures using LaMotte test kits and sampling equipment. This interactive CD allows students to individually review the how-to instructions. Visual and verbal information is given via Quick Time animations and still photos.

This pre-lab activity prepares students for water and quality testing in the field or classroom, and the material can be reviewed as often as needed. The CD provides benchmark data for each test factor which enables the comparison of results. Students enter data and receive information on the type of water quality indicated as well as typical cause and effects of higher and lower levels, including macro invertebrate bioassessment.
