COURSE OBJECTIVES:
Modeling surface water quality is an important focus of Civil and Environmental
Engineering. With the increased national and international concerns on the quality status of
surface water bodies, engineers are required to be equipped with the essential fundamental
knowledge and the necessary tools to model these systems. Thus, the main objective of the
course is to provide graduate students with a basic theoretical understanding of surface water
quality modeling and to introduce an array of commonly used models including QUAL2EU,
CE-QUAL-W2, WASP and others.
