Several quantitative methods that may be useful for lake trophic quality management planning are discussed and illustrated. An emphasis is placed on scientific methods in research, data analysis, and modeling. Proper use of statistical methods is also stressed, along with considerations of uncertainty in data analysis and modeling. Following an introductory discussion of scientific methods, limnological variables important to lake quality management are reviewed. Methods of data acquisition, or sampling design are then presented, along with techniques for analyzing, summarizing, and presenting data (with an emphasis on robust methods). The concept of summary statistics forms a logical introduction to the next section on lake water quality indices. This is followed by methods for acquiring nutrient budget data which are of prime importance to the succeeding section on lake trophic quality modeling. Included in this section is a step-by-step procedure for the prediction of phosphorus concentration, and the estimation of the prediction uncertainty, from land use information and certain lake characteristics.
