WEBMOD

Water Energy Biogeochemical Model

Water Energy Biogeochemical Model (WEBMOD) is a water, energy and biogeochemical watershed model that captures the interactions in urban and natural systems. Its capabilities include optimization, sensitivity analysis, statistical analysis, forecasting, and tile-drainage system pipe flow interactions.

Spatial Resolution
The analysis area is on the watershed scale. Watershed is divided into model response units defined by the user, typically ranging between 10 sq. km and 1000 sq. km.
Temporal Resolution
Daily time steps are used in the model. The simulation duration is on the order of years.
Outputs
Model outputs include stream routing, geochemical transport, among others for the watershed.
