Cluster analysis (CA), discriminant analysis (DA) and principal component analysis (PCA) were comprehensively coupled to explore and identify the spatial and temporal variation and potential pollution sources in coastal water quality along Macau peninsula. The results show that the 12 months could be grouped into two periods, June–September and the remaining months, and the entire area divided into two clusters, one located at the western sides, and the other on the southeast and southern sides…
