The Orbetello lagoon is a shallow brackish waterbody subject to intense and diverse eutrophication (phytoplancton, macroalgae and macrophytes). Periodically a large amount of algae must be artificially removed, their collection and disposal representing a considerable management cost. This paper describes the design of a bloom predictor based on the daily(More)
Water quality modelling in small rivers is often considered unworthy from a practical and economic viewpoint. This paper shows instead that a simple model structure can be set up to describe the stationary water quality in small river basins in terms of carbon and nitrogen compounds, when the use of complex models is unfeasible. In short rivers point and(More)
A common limitation of the Activated Sludge Models (the representation of the nitrification dynamics as a single-step process and the consequent denitrification on nitrate alone. This generally acknowledged simplification may represent a serious limitation in specific applications where nitrites become important, either as a target final product or an(More)
