Abstract

An in-stream water quality model, QUESTOR (Quality Evaluation and Simulation Tool for River-systems), has been applied to rivers in Belgium, Finland and the United Kingdom as part of a study of the effects of climate change on the quality of freshwater resources in Europe. QUESTOR provides a flexible modelling framework that enables the assessment of alternative model structures based on different process representations. Results are presented from the application of a basic form of the model that includes a limited set of processes. The results for present-day simu
