This report outlines the methods and results of a laboratory-based protocol for finding the site-specific conversion factor for NTU to SSC at 11 water quality monitoring locations across North Queensland. Going forward, the NTU/SSC conversion values reported in this document will be monitored in-situ during routine field excursions. Further, in line with best practice recommendations, laboratory calibration will be repeated inter-annually or following any large disturbance events and the reported conversion factors updated accordingly.
