Assessment of Temporal Frequencies
As discussed in section 2.2.3 of Chapter 2, temporal frequencies of sampling are significant with respect to two important characteristics of a monitoring network: (a) cost-effectiveness, and (b) information to be extracted from available data (data utility). Thus, selection and assessment of temporal design criteria have received considerable attention from designers and researchers.
