Abstract:Lake Constance is among the largest lakes in Central Europe and represents the most important drinking water reservoir in South-Western Germany. Besides being a drinking water supply the lake is also the receiving water of numerous waste-water treatment plants within its catchment. For improved water quality management of the lake the research project BodenseeOnline was initiated.
The objective of the research project BodenseeOnline is to develop a decision support system for the interpretation of the up to date three dimensional flow fields and water quality in Lake Constance. The three dimensional distribution of hydrophysical and biogeochemical parameters are simulated with numerical models.
A coupled lake model system of hydrodynamic and water quality developed by the Centre of Water Research at the University of Western Australia is included in BodenseeOnline. The system contains the hydrodynamic model ELCOM and the water quality model CAEDYM. These models are being adapted and validated with observed data from several measurement campaigns.
