A microcomputer model of contaminant transport in an aquatic system

, : A microcomputer model of contaminant transport in an aquatic system. Environmental Monitoring and Assessment 42(3): 265-283

A micro computer model was developed for routing chemical waste contamination through a small aquatic system. The capabilities of this simulation model include the following characteristics: a) It distributes contamination by advection and dispersion along the longitudinal axis of the system. b) It may be discretized into any number of segments (vertical planes normal to the longitudinal axis) as may be appropriate to describe spatial variations in chemical contamination. c) It is capable of treating instantaneous, continuous, or time varying releases of chemical waste contamination. d) It provides for temporal description of contamination throughout the system. e) It provides for adsorption and desorption by both vegetation and bottom sediments. The model can be run on microcomputer with Fortran compiler. The model applied to two small streams which are located in U.S.A., and Canada. The model results compared well with observed data. The dispersion parameter was computed by the model.
