Review of River and Reservoir Water Quality Models for Predicting Effects of Climate Change
ISBN: 1 84057 188 8
A review was carried out of existing calibrated water quality models of rivers and reservoirs. A number of river models were identified as suitable candidates to predict the impact of climate change on water quality. these included Thames, Trend, Aire, Wharfe, Wye and Almond. Few reservoir quality models have been applied to UK reservoirs. The only models identified as suitable candidates to predict the impact of climate changes were two models of Wraysbury Reservoir: SULIS to predict water quality and PROTECH to predict any changes in dominant algae.
