Abstract

To better formulate water resources policies and management strategies, a computer model that simulates concentrations of dissolved chemicals in snowmelt-runoff from forested watersheds in Arizona has been formulated. Applications of the model, which is user friendly and can be adapted to most IBM-compatible computers, include simulating effects of watershed management practices on dissolved chemical concentrations, identifying watershed management practices that are 'safe' in terms of adherence to water quality standards, and estimating magnitudes of nutrient flows from forested watersheds of specified conditions.
