Daughney, C.J. 2005 Spreadsheet for automatic processing of water quality data : theory, use and implementation in Excel . Lower Hutt: Institute of Geological & Nuclear Sciences. Institute of Geological & Nuclear Sciences science report 2005/35 84 p.
Abstract: This report provides a detailed description of the Excel spreadsheet called NGMP Calculator, which was developed for automatic processing of water quality data obtained through the National Groundwater Monitoring Programme. The NGMP Calculator spreadsheet was developed because, at the time of writing, software with comparable functionality was not commercially available. Excel was selected to ensure portability. The NGMP Calculator spreadsheet was designed to automatically process results for many different analytes in each of many different samples collected from many different sites. (auth)
