Guidelines for Health Related Monitoring of Coastal Water Quality

United Nations Environment Programme ; World Health Organization (1977)

The present guidelines were drawn up to meet only those needs of participants in MED VII which are relevant to coastal water quality monitoring as expressed in the joint WHO/UNEP Expert Consultation on the subject (1). Many activities in MED VII are far beyond the scope of the monitoring programme proposed here, such as epidemiological studies parallel to coastal monitoring, and there has been no attempt to include methodology for such studies in the present guidelines.
