We discuss a visualization system for the comparison of simulated and measured water quality. The system extends SCIRT (Site Characterization Interactive Research Toolkit), an interactive system originally developed at the NSF Engi-1 Introduction Management of environmental quality requires analyses of complex processes which often defy direct insight.

This paper describes our experience in designing and building a tool for visualizing the results of the CE-QUAL-ICM Three-Dimensional Eutrophication Model, as applied to water quality in the Chesapeake Bay. This model outputs a highly multidimensional dataset over very many timesteps – outstripping the capabilities of the visualization tools available to(More)
Approved for public release; distribution is unlimited. Abstract: The Corps of Engineers Integrated Compartment Water Quality Model (CE-QUAL-ICM or simply ICM) was designed to be a flexible, widely applicable eutrophication model. Ecopath with Ecosim (EWE) is a freely distributed network model supported by the Fisheries Centre, University of British(More)
Environmental Laboratory Approved for public release; distribution is unlimited. ABSTRACT: The CE-QUAL-ICM three-dimensional eutrophication model was applied to Lake Wash-ington, northwestern Washington State, for the period 1995-1997. Transport processes were obtained from the companion CH3D-WES hydrodynamic model. The model activated 18 state variables in(More)
