Document Type: Monograph
In order to assess the efficacy and effectiveness of the NRAs 1990 routine monitoring programme,to obtain a general overview of the incidence of blue-green algae and any possible cases of toxicity during 1990, a questionnaire was distributed to each region. The questionnaire was divided into four sections, as outlined below, covering a period from 1Bt January to 30th November: Section 1. Algal monitoring from the beginning of January to the beginning of May; Section 2. Algal monitoring from the beginning of May to the end of October. This is essentially the routine monitoring programme; Section 3. Algal monitoring from the end of October to the end of November; Section 4. General questions. All ten questionnaires were completed and received by the beginning of January 1991. This report summarises the content of the questionnaires and aims to provide a basis on which further monitoring recommendations can be made in order to enhance a more effective monitoring programme for 1991.
