CE-QUAL-W2: A Numerical Two-Dimensional, Laterally Averaged Model of Hydrodynamics and Water Quality; User's Manual.
ARMY ENGINEER WATERWAYS EXPERIMENT STATION VICKSBURG MS ENVIRONMENTAL LAB
Pagination or Media Count:
This manual describes the two-dimensional, laterally averaged hydrodynamic and water quality model CE-QUAL-W2 and provides guidance in its use. The model was developed primarily for use in reservoirs but has applicability to lakes, rivers, and estuaries. The manual is organized into four major parts with several appendixes. In Part I, CE-QUAL-W2 is introduced to the reader by summarizing its major usages, attributes, and historical development. Part II addresses model capabilities, assumptions, and limitations and supplies the basic information required to use the model. Part III outlines in detail the structure of CE-QUAL-W2, including the basic model equations and solution procedures. Part IV provides additional details of data assembly, presents literature values of various coefficients and constants, and discusses how to calibrate the model and interpret output. The appendixes include Appendix A, a description of various programming aspects Appendix B, a glossary of variables and coefficients used in CE-QUAL-W2 and Appendix C, a description of the statistical and graphics routines.
