Title: The Ribble Estuary 1992 surveys : summary of results
Author: National Rivers Authority North West Region
Document Type: Monograph
The following report summarises routine and baseline water quality surveys carried out on the Ribble estuary during 1992. The aim was to survey monthly throughout the year, although this proved impracticable during August, September and December. Sampling locations are shown in Fig.l and Table 1. Baseline surveys are designed to respond to regional, national, and European requirements. During 1992 baseline surveys were carried out in January, April, June, July, and October. In 1993 this will be extended to monthly. Table 2 and Table 3 list the suite of parameters analysed for routine and baseline surveys respectively. It should be noted that analysis for organic parameters was not carried out in 1992 but will commence in 1993.
