Event: Water Quality Monitoring Design Course
Date:Wed, Mar 7th 2018, all day
Water Quality Monitoring Design course at UC Berkeley Extension, March 7-8, 2018
UCBE will offer my course twice this year, in March and September 2018. Thirteen years of teaching this course helped me hone the course with ample experience and feedback, and all course materials undergo a thorough update before every class.
The course is designed to help Monitoring Project personnel generate usable, reliable, and well documented data through a scientifically-defensible monitoring design. The course also addresses the need to generate SWAMP-comparable data in California and provides updated information on the resources offered by SWAMP.
We review the basic concepts of scientific measurements, sampling design principles, and data quality management as applied to the process of generating good environmental data. Students also learn how hypothesis testing can be applied to trend monitoring, regulatory decision making, and evaluation of the effectiveness of management measures implemented to reduce pollution. The course helps students understand the entire thought process that underlies the planning of an environmental monitoring effort, and provides ample systematic planning tools, templates, check-lists, and labor & budget spreadsheets that have proved extremely useful to our students.
