Water Oxygenation Deoxygenation Assessment (WODA) (="Water" in Polish) has been produced by collaboration between Italy and Poland. It is an attempt to build a mathematical model, of water quality in rivers, aiming to describe the most important biochemical occurance by the smallest amount of data.

It is a modelling support system dedicated to problems of water quality in rivers.

The system can:

This package is compatible with most computers. It could be used when a multivariable analysis is necessary on a river section. It can help in the choice of an admissible level of pollution simulating the effects of alternative actions, treatment plants, various sources of pollution and varying locations of foundation aerators.
