How to Measure Dissolved Oxygen

Washington State University Department of Ecology

This web page, hosted by the Washington State Department of Ecology, offers a general overview of dissolved oxygen and how it is measured. It includes protocols for measuring dissolved oxygen in turbulent waters as well as using the Winkler titration method. The site also features links to measuring other water quality parameters such as pH, nutrients, and turbidity.
