Selection of modeling and monitoring strategies for estuarine water quality management
Estuarine water quality management is challenging owing to the complex hydrodynamics, water quality kinetics, international and domestic legislation, and human impact that take place in an estuarine environment. Scientists respond to this challenge by 'observing, hypothesizing and predicting' the behavior of the estuary. This is accomplished via developing water quality models which are idealizations of the behavior and by water quality monitoring. As most of the water quality models were developed for research, they did not serve the purposes of management. Because scientific methods were not ...
