Water quality training resources for CaBA partners to show what sort of information can be obtained from different types of water quality monitoring data, and to make available a suite of tools and resources to help access and analyse existing data, and plan future collaborative monitoring strategies.
Practical guidance for CaBA partners interested in designing and managing a water quality monitoring programme. Includes a summary of monitoring equipment, data analysis and visualisation ideas, sampling protocols and advice for FIO monitoring and guidance on planning your strategy, engaging volunteers and resourcing.
