Sampling Methods

EU water framework directive compliant sampling method according to Haase et al (2004), Limnologica 34,349-365. Sampling was done biannually. For discussion of AQEM protocol see: http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/S0075-9511(04)80005-7. Note that the values for organismQuantity are given per sq metre (as in original data) whereas the actual sampleSizeValue is 1.25 sq. m. The values of organismQuantity should be adjusted upward to reflect the sampling effort over an area of 1.25 sq.m.

Study Extent Reach scale sampling in lower mountain streams and rivers, German stream types 5 and 9.
