CE-QUAL-ICM

CE-QUAL-ICM is a watershed model developed by the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) designed to capture water quality and eutrophication processes in lakes, rivers, estuaries and coastal waters. It is capable of representing multiple geochemical cycles as well as salinity, temperature and suspended solids.

Spatial Resolution
Model grid size is variable. Spatial resolution based on data resolution (e.g. 100 km2 or volume of 1.5 to 160 m3)
Temporal Resolution
Temporal resolution is variable and based on the data quality and model calibration. Temporal resolution can vary from 10 minute to 1 year increments.
Outputs
