Abstract

The author's intention in preparing this review was to provide a context for the development and application of models for water quality management over the past two decades, and then to place some of the IIASA studies in that context. Because of its several disciplinary origins the subject of water quality modeling is rather amorphous. This review is therefore concerned with categorizing the problems of water pollution, assessing how one might use models to address these problems, examining the philosophical basis for developing such models, and thence surveying the application of models for the purpose of management. The author did not intend to provide a text on how to use models for managing water pollution problems; nor to merely provide a catalogue of who has done what in this subject area. Rather, he provides a historical account, a view of the current state, and a sketch of the possible future of water quality modeling.
