Toelichting (Engels) RIWA is managing and maintaining a water quality monitoring network to identify (undesired) changes in quality, testing water against the IAWR target values and underpinning goals and requirements. The necessary data is taken from member companies, governments and, to a limited extent, from our own additional research. Despite the rather strict design criteria, time series of water quality data are regularly interrupted so that it is more difficult to obtain statistically sound statements. This can be due to a multitude of causes, such as changes in analytical methodology, switching between laboratories doing the analysis, miscommunication, or (temporary) financial cuts. The missing values cause difficulties in producing reliable and sound statements about the variables concerned. An initial survey showed that estimating missing values with time series analysis (Box-Jenkins transfer modelling) might provide good results. This was tested with simulations, using series of monthly averages of chloride. A full year of data was omitted from a series of data from Lobith and then the missing values were estimated using chloride data from the upstream site of Cologne and discharge data from Lobith. This gave promising results.
