Spatial Resolution
Spatial resolution is variable. The model provides an increased level of accuracy at larger grid size than finite difference models.
Temporal Resolution
Temporal resolution is variable. Model has an increased level of accuracy at larger time steps than for models using finite difference solution approaches.
Outputs
Outputs specifics include water quality characteristics.
