Applications of the Dynamic Estuary Model (DEM) to both the Delaware and Potomac Estuaries by the Environmental Protection Agency during the 1970s are summarized and evaluated. Methods for calibrating, refining, and validating this model, and statistics for evaluating its performance are discussed. Following a brief description of DEM, observed and predicted hydrodynamic, mass transport, and water quality variables are statistically analyzed for the Delaware and Potomac applications. Weaknesses in the model and in these applications are identified.
