Surface Water Quality Modeling Training

EPA’s Water Modeling Workgroup (WMW) sponsors an ongoing series of two-hour webinars to help water quality professionals better understand surface water quality models and how they can be used to address water quality problems. Under An Introduction to Water Modeling, the first three webinars cover modeling basics such as selecting, developing, and running hydrology and water quality models. Subsequent webinars focus on modeling specific pollutants and parameters (for example, nutrients, sediment, metals), specific types of models, and modeling at different scales.
