Title: Modelling of algal blooms - third interim report
Author: C. S. Reynolds
Author: A. E. Irish
Document Type: Monograph
This is the third interim report on the research project to develop predictive models to quantify algal blooms in relation to environmental variables. The projects objectives are: (i) To develop models simulating the impact of vertical structure and mass transfer upon the dynamics of planktonic algae, including cyanobacteria, in lakes and reservoirs; (ii) To assess the potential of sedimentary phosphorus to sustain algal growth following reduction in external loading; (iii) To expand and enhance formulations to predict behaviour of blue-green algal populations and to incorporate these into a model software package; (iv) To recommend a strategy for the production of user-friendly packaging for the software adaptable to particular sites.
