Abstract : This manual describes and provides guidance for the use of CE-QUAL-W2 V2.O, a two-dimensional, longitudinal/vertical, hydrodynamic and water quality model. The model was originally developed by the Environmental and Hydraulics laboratories, U.S. Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station, and is suitable for applications to rivers, lakes, reservoirs, and estuaries. Version 2.0 is a result of major code modifications that have improved the mathematical description of the prototype, computational efficiency, and utility of the model. The manual is organized into three chapters and four appendixes. Chapter (1) consists of an introduction to the model and the user manual. Chapter (2) describes the model's major capabilities and limitations. Chapter (3) provides an overview of the steps involved in applying the model including data preparation and model application. The appendixes provide the user with the information necessary to understand the model details. Appendix A describes the theoretical, numerical, and computational basis for the hydrodynamic portion of the model. Appendix B describes the theoretical and computational basis for the water quality portion of the model. Appendix C describes the preparation of input files. Appendix D describes the algorithms used in the code. An index is included in Appendix E. References include a partial bibliography of CE-QUAL-W2 applications.
