This session will provide the basics of how to set up a Visual Plumes model. The Visual Plumes model system is a Windows-based software application for simulating surface water jets and plumes. It also assists in the preparation of mixing zone analyses, Total Maximum Daily Loads (TMDLs), and other water quality applications. Case studies demonstrating how to use the Visual Plumes model will be provided.
