Abstract:

The present report is one of a series that documents research relating the coupling of spatially and temporally detailed eutrophication models with ecosystem models that lack spatial and temporal resolution. Specifically, the Corps of Engineers Integrated Compartment Water Quality Model CE-QUAL-ICM is coupled to the Ecopath with Ecosim EWE fisheries model. Previous reports in this series introduced the concepts necessary for communication between the two models and detailed the linkage. The previous linkage relied on a human interface between the two models. That is, information from CE-QUAL-ICM was printed and entered into the EWE input screen by hand. This process has been replaced by a graphical user interface GUI, which is documented herein.
