Lee, S., S. Sengupta, AND E. Nwadike. VERIFICATION AND TRANSFER OF THERMAL POLLUTION MODEL. VOLUME VI: USER'S MANUAL FOR ONE-DIMENSIONAL NUMERICAL MODEL. U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Washington, D.C., EPA/600/7-82/037F.

Description:

The six-volume report: describes the theory of a three-dimensional (3-D) mathematical thermal discharge model and a related one-dimensional (1-D) model, includes model verification at two sites, and provides a separate user's manual for each model. The 3-D model has two forms: free surface and rigid lid. The former, verified at Anclote Anchorage (FL), allows a free air/water interface and is suited for significant surface wave heights compared to mean water depth; e.g., estuaries and coastal regions. The latter, verified at Lake Keowee (SC), is suited for small surface wave heights compared to depth (e.g., natural or man-made inland lakes) because surface elevation has been removed as a parameter.
