Abstract


We have investigated water quality and the correlation between water composition and sampling site. Thirty six samples (nine from each reservoir) were collected every month from four main water reservoirs in northern Jordan. Several chemometrical methods were employed to conduct this investigation. These methods are Partial Least Square Discriminant Analysis (PLSDA), Cluster Analysis (CA) and Principal Component Analysis (PCA). The correlation between water sample and site was achieved successfully. In addition to that, we have found that water quality from Wadi Al-Arab, Zeglab (Sharhabeel ben Hasneh) and Al-Wihdeh Reservoirs were nearly close but different from King Talal reservoir.
