Water Quality Modeling Analysis of Hypoxia in Long Island Sound Using LIS 3.0
Entry ID: HEP_LIShypoxia


Summary
Abstract: This work was directed primarily towards the development of a mathmatical model
of the eutrophication and hypoxia processes of Long Island Sound. It is the
third of three models of the Sound and represents a fine-grid analysis of the
effects of nutrients on Sound water quality. The purpose of this final model is
to provide a fine-grid realization of the bathymetry and circulation features
of Long Island Sound. The fine-grid model also provide managers with a tool
with which to make a detailed analysis of the impact of various nutrient
sources and control strategies on Long Island Sound water quality.

Quality A mathematical model of the water quality of the Sound is a representation of
the principle components of the environment that influence a given water
quality variable. A model does not purport to represent all aspects of the
actual environment; a model attempts to incorporate only those features of the
problem that are most relevant. In this study, ... View entire text
