Row-Col AESOP

Row-Column Advanced Ecological Systems modeling Program (AESOP)

The Row-Column Advanced Ecological Systems modeling Program (Row-Col AESOP) is a water quality and hydrodynamic watershed model used to evaluate eutrophication and point and nonpoint pollution sources.

Model Information
For more information about this model, go to www.hdrinc.com
Spatial Resolution
The defined grid matches the ECOM model. A variable grid size is used and the vertical grid dimension bases on the terrain following sigma coordinate system.
Temporal Resolution
The model includes five time stepping equation options.
Outputs
Model outputs include predicted water quality, eutrophication, and pollution sources, among others for the system.
Intended User

Inclusion of Climate Change
If possible climate conditions would be provided through integration with the ECOM hydrodynamic model.
