A common shortcoming of many monitoring programs is a failure to analyse the data collected appropriately, or an inability to interpret the results. Rhithroecology has extensive experience in analysing and interpreting ecological and water quality data. Ian Campbell has published over 100 peer reviewed papers and book chapters. Peer review is the primary mechanism of quality assurance in science. Ian was the first to analyse and interpret water quality data for the Mekong River, and more recently has analysed and interpreted planktonic algal data from the Fly River (PNG), and aquatic invertebrate data for BHP-Billiton.
Rhithroecology is experienced with, and has the software to conduct, both standard univariate and multivariate statistical analysis methods including PRIMER.
