Recent studies are reviewed to provide a comprehensive volume on state-of-the-art formulations used in surface water quality modeling along with accepted values for rate constants and coefficients. Topics covered include system geometric representation (spatial and temporal), physical processes (mass transport, heat budgets, ice formation, light extinction), biological systems (fish, benthic organisms), and chemical processes (nutrient cycles, carbonate system). A detailed discussion is also presented on issues that are ordinarily of primary interest in modeling studies. These include reaeration, dissolved oxygen saturation, photosynthesis, deoxygenation, benthic oxygen demand, coliform bacteria, algae, and zooplankton. These discussions incorporate factors affecting the specific phenomena and methods of measurement in addition to data on rate constants.
