One-Dimensional Transport With Inflow and Storage (OTIS): A Solute Transport Model For Streams and Rivers
Entry ID: USGS_OTIS


Summary
Abstract: OTIS is a mathematical simulation model used to characterize the fate and transport of water-borne solutes in streams and rivers. The governing equation underlying the model is the advection-dispersion equation with additional terms to account for transient storage, lateral inflow, first-order decay, and sorption. This equation and the associated equations describing transient storage and sorption are solved using a Crank-Nicolson finite-difference solution.
