Abstract:

Simulates the effects of nitrates, phosphate, turbidity, pH, temperature, ammonia, alkalinity and light on the growth of algae. In addition periphyton photosynthesis is simulated under different temperatures, different Carbon dioxide levels, and for light adapted and shade adapted communities. Results can be displayed as scatter plots. Manual included.
