    The National Field Manual for the Collection of Water-Quality Data (NFM) provides documented methods and protocols for USGS field personnel who collect water-quality data. The NFM provides detailed, comprehensive, and citable procedures for sampling water resources, processing samples for analysis of water quality, measuring field parameters.

The Algal Biomass Samples (ABS) are quantitative and will be analyzed for soft algae, diatoms, chlorophyll a, and Ash Free Dry Mass (AFDM). The Diatom. The following method for the analysis of composite algae samples has been adapted from Protocols for the analysis of algal samples collected as part of the U. S.
