This study presented the development of a water quality engineering model for nitrogen-limited, aerobic estuarine systems. The uniqueness of the model lies in its application of real-time hydrodynamics, that is the proper specification of mass transport due to changes in magnitude and direction of flow with time in tidal systems. The model is intended to be used in engineering decisions regarding the degree of eutrophication due to distributed and point source loadings in estuaries. This user's manual contains a review of the theoretical background for the one-dimensional, real-time, nitrogen cycle model, a detailed discussion of the computer program including a complete listing of the program, and an example of the application of the model to hypothetical estuarine and river systems.
Prepared by Ralph M. Parsons Laboratory for Water Resources and Hydrodynamics, Department of Civil Engineering, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, Mass., under grant no. 800429. Includes appendices. Includes bibliographical references (pages 186-187).
