Calibrating the Chesapeake Bay Water Quality Modelby Carl F. Cerco, U.S. Army Engineer Waterways, Experiment Station, United States,
Thomas M. Cole, U.S. Army Engineer Waterways, Experiment Station, United States,
Abstract: A eutrophication model comprised of twenty-two state variables including three algal groups and multiple species of carbon, nitrogen, phosphorus, and silica is described. Equations governing algae, a single nutrient, and primary production for a simplified system are presented and solved analytically. Characteristics of the simplified system are used to guide calibration of the complete model.
