Water Quality Probes: Installation, Operation, Calibration, and Maintenance

Course code: USGS-HIF-QW1638
Course title: Water Quality Probes: Installation, Operation, Calibration, and Maintenance
Description: This Course is intended for Hydrographers who work directly with water quality (QW) instruments. The theory and background of most QW parameters will be discussed briefly, with most of the time devoted to hands-on practice. It will concentrate on the “big five” water quality parameters: Water Temperature; Conductivity/Specific Conductance; pH; Dissolved Oxygen; and Turbidity.
Objectives:
To instill into students the knowledge, techniques, and tools necessary to properly install and maintain water quality instruments in the field and to obtain good, well-documented QW data.
Target Audience:
All hydrologic technicians who are currently involved, or will soon be involved, with collection of water quality field data and/or the operation, maintenance, and calibration of the probes used to collect water quality data.
