This manual describes the methods which have been in use at the Taupo Research Laboratory for several years. They have been developed primarily for the analysis of low concentrations of plant micronutrients in weakly buffered freshwaters, as part of the laboratory's research into aquatic productivity and nutrient cycling. As a result, many of the methods have been optimised to measure trace concentrations down to less than 1 g m/sup - 3/ for all minor ions. The methods are not 'standard' however, and can be easily modified to accommodate higher concentration ranges. Most of the techniques utilise a continuous flow autoanalyser and a section discussing the principles and use of this equipment has been included in this manual. It is hoped that this will illustrate the underlying simplicity of segmented continuous flow methodology and help overcome the initial, impression of an autoanalyser as a mass of 'animated spaghetti'. Nearly everyone who has been involved with the autoanalyser at the Taupo Research Laboratory over the last ten years has contributed to this manual. The trouble shooting guide is a 'distillation' of about 50 man years of experience in running autoanalysers. In particular I would like to thank M. Gibbs, S. Pickmere and M. Timperley for critically reviewing the manuscript and contributing many helpful suggestions and ideas for improving its usefulness and readability. Finally I thank J. Simmiss for typing the manuscript
