Abstract: The mathematical water quality model QUAL-II has been modified to reflect advances in the understanding of algal, nutrient, and light interactions. Code changes were also made to incorporate hydraulic, boundary condition, water quality constituent, and rate coefficient features that had utility in other steady state water quality models. The user has an increased flexibility for input simulation options and the model provides a comprehensive output format designed to aid in calibration and verification applications.
