 Summary:
 This paper present an overview of a one-day measuring campaign implemented along the shoreline of the fourth sector of Lake Palic. The measurements aimed to provide a more comprehensive understanding of spatial changes in water quality. Four water quality parameters (electric conductivity, water temperature, dissolved oxygen, pH) were measured on 18 locations, resulting in 72 measurements. The data set was subject to both fundamental analysis and cluster analysis. The imployed methodology gave results that can identify two, possibly three, groups of sampling locations. The first group represents the shoreline adjacent to agricultural lands, while the second group is comprised of sites in the vicinity of zones with considerable anthropogenic pressure. The (optional) third group could be put in either of the first categories, and it can be considered as locations with minor anthropogenic pressure.
