Monitoring Round Schedules (formerly Monitoring Programs) can be developed for one-off, recurring or ad-hoc field events and will typically consist of:
|•||one or more field sampling events (Monitoring Rounds)|
|•||one or more matrix types (i.e. soil, water, sediment, gas ….etc)|
|•||one or more locations at one or more sites|
A Schedule does not necessarily require laboratory analysis – it may consist of field observations and/or measurements (such as water levels or pH measurements). The inverse also applies – field observations/measurements are not required
The following are examples of Monitoring Rounds that can be Scheduled:
|•||Weekly groundwater gauging at 100 sites across Australia (an example of a Schedule comprising recurring Rounds at multiple sites)|
|•||Monthly groundwater sampling at a site, where samples are analysed for a unique analytical combination, depending upon the location (example of a Schedule comprising recurring Rounds at a site)|
|•||A surface water sampling event at a 10 locations across a site, triggered by rainfall events, with each sample analysed for unique analytical combination depending upon the location (example of a Schedule comprising ad-hoc Rounds)|
Schedules can be accessed by users with LSPECS Scheduler roles.
Schedule Details can be created by clicking Create Schedule or selecting an existing Schedule by clicking on the Schedule name.
