  • Profile: Modelling eutrophication and microbial risk in peri-urban river systems using discriminant function analysis

    This paper develops two predictive models, one for river eutrophication risk and the other for microbial risk. The models are intended for a preliminary assessment of a river reach, particularly to assess the level of risk (high or low) for algal bloom and whether the river water is suitable for primary contact activities such as swimming. The application of the tools can help in rapid assessment ...
