Water Quality Spot Checking: QA/QC, Data Analysis and Calibration Best Practices Webinar
Date: August 2, 2018
Time: 2:00 pm EDT
Water quality parameters such as temperature, conductivity, dissolved oxygen, pH, and turbidity have the potential to rapidly change in response to different types of local events within the environment. Collecting accurate, reliable, and efficient water quality data in the field helps government agencies, municipalities, utilities and private companies keep track of changes as part of their water quality monitoring programs. In this free webinar, we discuss the use of water quality field instrumentation for efficient attended monitoring at specific locations of interest.
Join us as we discuss spot checking applications relating to these topics:
- QA/QC best practices for validating measurements at continuous monitoring sites
- Data analysis and data post processing techniques (or fundamentals)
- Vertical and horizontal profiling best practices
- Calibration considerations when sampling different water bodies
- Instrument transport and design considerations to protect your investment
- Also, you will have the opportunity to participate in live polls and a live Q&A session with our guest speakers.
