A summary report on the proceedings of a Workshop on Mathematical Modeling of Water Quality is presented. A number of key themes from the Workshop discussion are reported -- themes which deal with the specific details of, for instance, the modeling of temperature profiles and eutrophication, and themes which are concerned with more general techniques of model development and the application of systems analysis. The concluding statements of several ad hoc working groups from the Workshop are included. These statements refer primarily to water quality modeling research in the context of collaboration with and through the medium of IIASA. A selected bibliography is provided for a small number of the informal presentations of Workshop participants. Among other conclusions, the following deserve special mention: the need for a better understanding of sediment/water column interactions in both estuarine and shallow lake systems; the problem of model verification and the constraints of field data; and the requirements for comparative studies and critical appraisal of already existing models by reference to well-documented case studies.
