DESCRIPTION


This book presents current issues in water monitoring science, policy, information transfer, research, and advances in technology. Basic concepts discussed in the book include protocols and techniques of ecological restoration and confidence in the restoration process, using sound science in water quality monitoring, and relationship between policy development and monitoring capabilities. Methods of water monitoring and data interpretation for water-quality protection are discussed by presenting several case studies. The book provides an overview of the 21st century water monitoring technologies and their potential for water quality-protection. This book is best suitable as a reference for water monitoring agencies and graduate studies in water monitoring research. Publ. 2001, WRP.
