Object-oriented modeling approach to surface water quality management

The lack of sufficient water quality data in many places hinders the efforts of surface water quality modeling, and therefore affects the process of water quality management. In this paper, the potential of an object-oriented simulation environment for surface water quality management, based on the concepts of system dynamics (OO-SD), is discussed. The characteristics, along with a brief explanation, of the OO-SD approach are provided. A case study on the use of the OO-SD modeling approach for… CONTINUE READING
