This document contains a brief introduction and procedures to follow at the base location and on-site, including methods for sampling water chemistry (grabs and in situ), phytoplankton, zooplankton, sediment diatoms, pathogens, algal toxins, benthic macroinvertebrates, and physical habitat. These methods are based on both the guidelines developed and followed in the Western Environmental Monitoring and Assessment Program and methods employed by several key states that were involved in the planning phase of this project. Methods described in this document are to be used specifically in work relating to the Survey of the Nation's Lakes.
