IAHR, founded in 1935, is a worldwide independent member-based organisation of engineers and water specialists working in fields related to the hydro-environmental sciences and their practical application. Activities range from river and maritime hydraulics to water resources development and eco-hydraulics, through to ice engineering, hydroinformatics, and hydraulic machinery.

Abstract
A statistical analysis of phytoplankton biomass (in terms of chlorophyll a: Chla ) using a factor analysis
( FA ) is performed in the Wadden Sea near Lauwersoog (53.4167กใ N, 6.2000กใ E). The present study is
based on a historical dataset (187 samples) from 2000 through 2009. The associated environmental
indicators are selected to investigate the properties of phytoplankton biomass, including salinity, nitrate
( 3 NO ), ammonia ( 4 NH ), phosphorus ( 4 PO ), dissolved silicate ( Si ), total nitrogen ( TN ), total
phosphorus (TP ), temperature (T ), available light intensity ( PAR ) and suspended matter ( SPM ). The
indicators of salinity, 3 NO , Si , T , TN and PAR are classified as the driving forcing, while the others
are distinguished as less dominant in this case. The findings of this study are significant for reducing the
overlapping information and characterizing the roles of environmental indicators to phytoplankton
biomass.
