Modeling Turbidity in a Water Supply Reservoir : Advancements and Issues

  title={Modeling Turbidity in a Water Supply Reservoir : Advancements and Issues},
  author={Rakesh K. Gelda and Steven W. Effler},
The development and testing of a “turbidity” model is documented for a water supply reservoir, Schoharie Reservoir, NY, where inorganic terrigenous particles received during runoff events in turbid density currents from the primary tributary cause distinct periodic degradation. The model state variables are fractions two or three of the beam attenuation coefficient at 660 nm c660 , a surrogate optical metric of turbidity. The fractions of c660 correspond to slow and rapidly settling components… CONTINUE READING
