Abstract: The calibration of dynamic water quality models for lakes and reservoirs requires significant quantities of data, experience, and judgement. In particular, the identification of an appropriate set of coefficient values for the chemical-biologic components of such a model is particularly difficult. It is hypothesized that if the hydrodynamic and water quality components are decoupled that accurate and cost-effective calibration of the water quality components can be achieved by using in-situ microcosms.
