Since trophic status assessment of water quality is very important for the water resources management, the assessment results obtained from using only one parameter may easily mislead or bias the decision makers or managers. Even when using a multivariable index, how to determine the weights of all factors is debatable. In this research, one complementary evaluation method, self-organizing map (SOM), for diagnosing water quality has been used to develop a trophic state classifier and is… CONTINUE READING
