Abstract: An overview of process descriptions, assumptions, constraints, and other considerations that enter into the development of deterministic mathematical surface water quality models is given in this report. Modeling of hydrodynamic transport is treated separately for "standing" waters (lakes, reservoirs, ponds, and impoundments) and flowing waters (rivers and streams). Some information on sediment transport as it relates to water quality is presented. Models addressing organic wastes and nutrients, synthetic organic chemicals, and metals transport and transformation are addressed in separate sections. The review ends with an outlook towards challenges and possible future developments.
