Description This document discusses the most recent (third) calibration of the Lake Whatcom CE-QUAL-W2 water quality model. Tributary loadings were supplied by the new HSPF watershed model. Model development and initial calibration were documented in the report “Lake Whatcom Water Quality Model” (Berger and Wells, 2005). Model improvements and a second calibration were documented in the memorandum “Whatcom Model calibration with variable stoichiometry in sediments” (Berger and Wells, 2007). Model-data error statistics of the prior (second) calibration were listed in “Appendix A: Old Calibration Statistics” for reference.
