|Description||A new stochastic water quality modeling tool was applied to quantify potential climate change effects on a nutrient impaired reach in the Pacific Northwest. This tool allows for multiple stochastic inputs for steady state river water quality simulations. A previously published calibrated deterministic model of the targeted reach was adapted for this study. This model simulates steady-state nutrient, algae, and dissolved oxygen dynamics with both point and nonpoint pollutant loadings. It also includes simulation of diurnally varying water temperature, calculated as a function of air temperature, shading, and streamflow using heat budget equations.
