The objectives of this study were to investigate the temporal variability of the concentrations of twelve Red List compounds, mainly pesticides, in the River Thames, and to compare the estimates of loads of these substances based on discrete data (grab samples and instantaneous measurements of flow) with those based on continuous monitoring. The investigation was carried out using the continuous flow-proportional sampler previously established at Kingston upon Thames.
