Task Group 3.9: Global water quality modelling protocol

Objectives

Develop a modelling protocol for global water quality. No such protocol exists yet.

  • Bridge water, lake and agricultural land use
  • River-ocean linkages could also be considered here
  • Hydrological inputs required for considering water quality
  • Need for a dedicated workshop on dedicated global-scale water quality modelling.
  • Merge landscape modelling and water quality modelling
  • Hydrothermal modelling is current focus of lake sector, but the models have water quality modules for other water systems (e.g., rivers, groundwater) and the modellers have the expertise to simulate and analyse the output. incorporation is long-term project
  • PROCLIAS can provide funding for a workshop
