Modeling Hydrodynamics and Water
Quality of Pit Lakes
A Hands-on Introduction to the Open Source Software PITLAKQ
Modeling pit lakes is a complex task. The open source software PITLAKQ (http://www.pitlakq.com/) allows one to model hydrodynamic processes in pit lakes including temperature stratification. Furthermore, transport of constituents and a variety of chemical and biological reactions can also be modeled. PITLAKQ combines the abilities of both CE-QUAL-W2 (http://www.cee.pdx.edu/w2/) and PHREEQC (http://wwwbrr.cr.usgs.gov/projects/GWC_coupled).
In addition, it provides new features such as distributed groundwater exchange, chemical treatment of lake water, and accounting for the impact of bank erosion on lake water quality.
This three-day workshop introduces PITLAKQ with a hands-on tutorial of setting up and running models.
