This one-of-a-kind workbook is an introduction to water body hydrodynamic and water quality modeling techniques and the properties of different models through hands-on software. The workbook explains how to set up models for different types of water bodies and water body problems, and different ways of examining and interpreting the model results. The model software includes the circulation in water bodies as influenced by inflows, outflows, tides, winds, salinity, and temperature. Coupled with this model are a dissolved oxygen depression model, a particulate-based nutrient and eutrophication model, and a sediment scour and deposition model. The workbook walks students through the steps of setting up an example application for its bathymetry, its input data file and specification of the desired output, followed by execution of example. Additional example applications are presented showing the setup of the model for different types of water bodies and for the different water quality models provided in the software. The results of the 30 example applications are provided in example output folders. An excellent learning tool for students in environmental engineering and environmental sciences programs, the models in ""Waterbody Hydrodynamic and Water Quality Modeling"" may be used for class assignments, term projects, and to supplement course lectures and textbooks. Practicing engineers will also find this workbook useful in making a rapid assessment of a water body problem. System requirements are: i486 or Pentium; processor-based personal computer - Microsoft Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows NT 4.0 or Windows 2000; 20 MB of available RAM; Minimum 30 MB of available hard-disk space (16MB are required for the program. 14 MB are required for Acrobat Reader).
