Description:

This section summarizes and evaluates the surfce water column chemistry assessment methods for USEPA/EMAP-SW, USGS-NAQA, USEPA-RBP, Oho EPA, and MDNR-MBSS. The basic objective of surface water column chemistry assessment is to characterize surface water quality by measuring a suite of analytes. Water chemistry data are measurements of chemical concentrations and physical properties of streamwater. Because each program has a unique set of objectives, each suite of analytes is also unique. A summary of the analytes used by the five reviewed programs is presented.
