Water renewal time calculation

Water renewal time calculation

This page contains all the files needed for the calculation or water renewal time of a lake according to the model presented in the paper:

Pilotti, M., Simoncelli, S., Valerio, G. (2014), A simple approach to the evaluation of the actual water renewal time of natural stratified lakes, Water Resources Research, VOL. 50, doi:10.1002/2013WR014471.
The attached files include:

  • A   Readme.pdf that describes the content of each file in the folder
  • The model.rar folder that contains the Matlab code for the water renewal time calculation, along with the related input files referred to the Lake Iseo test case.

These codes are freely available for scientific purposes, under the condition that the source paper is cited.
