A lake eutrophication management model

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

A eutrophication management optimization model (EMOM) was developed and applied for Lake Balaton - a typical shallow water body - in order to establish a short term control strategy. It incorporates a stochastic load response model which was derived from the Monte Carlo type usage of a four-compartment, four-box dynamic lake eutrophification model after developing synthetic time series generators for forcing functions. EMOM also includes a planning mode nutrient loading model which accounts for various uncertainties and stochastic effects. Major control options are phosphorus precipitation on existing sewage treatment plants and the construction of pre-reservoirs. Among alternative objective functions and models formulated, here a stochastic expectation-variance model is discussed which captures the major stochastic features of the problem. The 'optimal' short term strategy is worked out for Lake Balaton. In the frame of a sensitivity analysis the importance of various physical, chemical, biological and economic parameters is evaluated as regarding for eutrophication management.
