Representativeness and statistical power of the New Zealand river monitoring network

Publication date:  December 2013
Publication reference number:  CR 179

An assessment of the representativeness and statistical power of state of environment river monitoring sites across New Zealand. Differences exist across river environment classes. In general, river conditions in pastoral land cover classes can be reported with greater precision than in natural, urban or exotic forest land cover classes, because there are more monitoring sites in pastoral land cover classes.
