Piper Diagram

Form Name: Piper Diagram

 

Description: The Piper Diagram Form produces a conventional Piper diagram for a set of user-selected anions and cations. Users may elect to plot labels indicating the sample location ID. They may also elect to represent an additional analyte (typically total dissolved solids) as circles in the upper quadrant of the diagram, where the radius of each circle is proportional to the log-scale of the selected analyte. Once plotted, label positions may be manually modified. This form report requires that sample interval depths and elevations be associated with all measured data per instructions in this article.

 

File Name: EarthSoft.Forms.Library.EnviroInsite.dll

 

Language: English

 

Input Parameters: The following parameters may be selected from the standard EQuIS parameter selection interface. After the Piper diagram has been plotted, users may elect to double-click on the resulting diagram to display the Piper Diagram property dialog box. The property dialog box contains additional properties that are not accessible from the EQuIS Interface. Documentation of the properties in the Piper Diagram property dialog box are contained in the EnviroInsite documentation.

Tables:

 

Database Schema: Standard (no custom or add-on EQuIS Schemas required)

 

Database Version: EQuIS 7

 

Data Requirements: Concentrations of cations and anions are converted from mass to milliequivalents (meq) based on the entered values of equivalent weight in populated RT_ANALYTE_DETAIL.EQUIVALENT_WEIGHT fields. Only analytes for which RT_ANALYTE_DETAIL.EQUIVALENT_WEIGHT has been populated will be available for selection within the report. EnviroInsite expects that the equivalent weight of anions will be entered as negative quantities, while cations will carry positive equivalent weight values.

 

Report Requirements: A local installation of EQuIS EnviroInsite 7 is required to run this export.

 

Output Type: Print to Windows supported print drivers including Microsoft Print to PDF and Adobe Acrobat.
