2011 Treatise on Estuarine and Coastal Science  
My study addresses this question using a 15 complex ecosystem model, developed to guide the water quality criteria setting 16 process in the Hamilton Harbour (Ontario, Canada), along with a simpler plankton  ...  The Bayesian nature of my work is used: (i) to alleviate problems 23 of spatiotemporal resolution mismatch between watershed and receiving waterbody 24 models; and (ii) to overcome the conceptual or scale  ...  Generally, the modeling analysis 230 provides evidence that the two criteria are achievable, but the water quality setting 231 process should accommodate the natural variability by allowing for a realistic  ...

Current state and future perspectives of environmental modeling in the Great Lakes "...Complete [model] confirmation is logically precluded by the fallacy of affirming the consequent and by incomplete  ...  Models can only be evaluated in relative terms, and their predictive value is always open to question. The primary value of models is heuristic..." [Oreskes et al. (1994)] http://dx.  ...  Based on the Hamilton Harbour Area of Concern (AOC), Wellen et al. (2014-in this issue) and Kim et al.

The latter contention is particularly important when the water quality criteria setting process opts for a finer spatiotemporal resolution (Reckhow et al., 2005) .  ...  We test the capacity of an existing simple mass-balance total phosphorus (TP) model to evaluate nutrient loading scenarios in the Bay of Quinte, Ontario, Canada.  ...  The integration of the two models was founded upon a Bayesian configuration to describe probabilistically the relationships among the water quality variables; an essential characteristic if predictions  ...
