Abstract: A Lagrangian one-dimensional model of the dynamics of a reservoir is presented. The model utilizes new formulas to describe the dynamics of both the inflow and outflow. In addition, recent advances pioneered in the oceanographic literature have been modified and applied to the dynamics of the mixed layer. Finally, a new model is proposed for deep hypolimnionic mixing. The model so constructed contains only four universal constants. Data from one complete annual cycle of the salinity and temperature distribution from a Western Australian reservoir are used to calibrate the model.
