The formulation and application of a generalized water quality index based on multivariate factor analysis of water quality data from agricultural irrigation return flows
StatisticsView Usage Statistics
A water quality index was developed and used to evaluate the water quality of agricultural irrigation return flows. The index is based on multivariate factor analysis. The geographical applicability of the proposed index is examined.
