State variables: Dissolved oxygen, temperature, suspended solids
Forcing Functions: Oceanic inflow, river inflow, point source inflow.
Model purpose:
The model was developed to perform planning and ecosystem risk analysis in estuaries or coastal embayments where point source may have an impact on temperature, dissolved oxygen, and suspended solids.
