Microcomputers and Water Quality Models: Access for Decision Makers
Preview not available

Abstract

Although mathematical models are routinely applied for management of water quality, decision makers seldom have direct, one-on-one interaction with these quantitative tools. User-friendly programs for personal computers permit use of coupled nonpoint source pollution and water quality response models. The user can manipulate data bases and review various management options in assessing the impact of land use changes and pollution control actions on water quality. Color graphics and animation may be used to communicate complex concepts and principles to nontechnical users. The technique is demonstrated here to evaluate the sensitivity of water quality in Green Bay to changes in land use patterns.
