Description :
Multivariate statistical techniques, such as cluster analysis (CA), principal component analysis (PCA), factor analysis (FA) and discriminant analysis (DA), were applied to evaluate the temporal/spatial variations of water quality data sets for Kralkızı, Dicle and Batman dam reservoirs in the Tigris River basin, obtained during 1 year (2008–2009) of monitoring. This study highlights the usefulness of multivariate statistical techniques for the evaluation and interpretation of complex water quality data sets, apportionment of pollution sources/factors and the design of a monitoring network for the effective management of water resources. Discriminant analysis showed better results for data reduction and pattern recognition during both spatial and temporal analysis.
