This report summarizes the proceedings of an IIASA Workshop on Water Quality Modeling held at Laxenburg, Austria, September 13-16, 1977. The Workshop was held as an initial activity within IIASA's research Task on Models for Environmental Quality Control and Management.

In convening the Workshop, the organizers invited participants to express their views on the current state of mathematical modeling of water quality. They were also encouraged to speculate on future directions for the subject and to make recommendations for the ways in which such research could be organized in collaboration with IIASA. The report on the Workshop divides broadly into two sections: the first deals with key themes and salient problems of water quality modeling; the second reproduces the concluding statements of nine ad hoc working groups established during the Workshop. These working groups considered a number of specific areas such as deep lakes and reservoirs, the impact of toxic pollutants, systems methods in model development and analysis, and so forth.

An intermediate section of the report looks briefly as future perspectives in water quality modeling, and in the final section particular reference is made to the Institute's plans for water quality model development and application in particular case studies.
