Modifications of WASP for Simulating Periphyton Dynamics, Sediment Oxygen Demand and Other Enhancements
Abstract:The Water Quality Analysis Simulation Program (WASP6) is routinely used throughout the United States and World as a tool for managing water quality. WASP has a long history of development and application; it continues to be enhanced today to tackle some of the more complex issues associated with Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) development. This paper provides an overview of some of the enhancements made to WASP to deal with such issues as: attached algae, sediment oxygen demand, biological oxygen demand, and linkage with multi-dimensional hydrodynamic models.
