A Finite Element Ecological Model (FEEM) has been set up by fully coupling a primitive equation finite element hydrodynamic model (FEM) to an ecological model derived from EUTRO, the ecological submodel contained in the water quality model WASP, released by US-EPA. The work required the ‘decoupling’ of EUTRO from WASP and its transformation into a standalone program, the testing of such a structure versus the results obtained by running the WASP in the 0D version, the improvement of its… CONTINUE READING
