Water quality models simulate the fate of pollutants and the state of selected water quality variables in water bodies. They incorporate a variety of physical, chemical, and biological processes that control the transport and transformation of these variables. Water quality models are driven by hydrodynamics, point and nonpoint source loadings, and key environmental forcing functions, such as temperature, solar radiation, wind speed, pH, and light attenuation coefficients.
