It is not the purpose of this manual to make a nonmodeler able to develop a model by reading through it, since no manual of this nature can accomplish such a task. This manual is intended to increase the planner or manager's options by acquainting him with various types of models and informing him of the availability of currently working models. This manual contains the following: 1. A scheme indicating the types of water quality models which could be constructed, i.e. an overview of choices in models. 2. A brief description of each type of models developed under the Cooperative State ~gencies program. 3. A list of empirical formulas or values for the rate constants used in the models. 4. A directory of water quality models which have been applied to Virginia estuaries.
