The integrated modeling of the Tampa Bay Estuarine System (Florida) was conducted in an attempt to further our understanding of estuaries as integrated systems, and to provide a tool for quantitative assessment of various management practices. The primary objective of this study is to use models and field data to produce a detailed characterization of the hydrodynamics and water quality dynamics within the Bay. In this paper, the results of the water quality simulations are synthesized in terms of the dissolved oxygen balance. Furthermore, a conceptual model for the water quality dynamics in Tampa Bay is presented to account for the nutrient budget of the summer of 1991.

The model presented in this study is still far from being a comprehensive model that would explain all the processes occurring in the system. Nevertheless, it is a model that integrates the major components that drive the system, and it establishes a framework for future developments to answer specific management questions.
