Abstract : This study was conducted for the purpose of developing a methodology and associated software for linking hydrodynamic output from the RMAlO finite element model to the CE-QUAL-ICM finite volume water quality model. The ICM model is usually linked to hydrodynamic output from a finite difference hydrodynamic model, CH3D-WES. RMAlO uses an unstructured grid approach, whereas CH3D-WES is based on a structured gird scheme. A linkage to RMAlO was needed to provide greater flexibility for simulating water quality and contaminants. This report documents the development and testing of the RMA1O-ICM linkage.
