E.coli

Posts: 1
Hi there,

I'm modelling e.coli using the substance file provided in the forum page. The model is set in a strait where there's rivers meeting the sea. There's 8 boundaries with majority of them at the start of the river. I seem to be getting e.coli counts that are lower than expected. Any suggestion on why that may be?

The mortality rate of E. Coli depends on several physical parameters like salinity, sunlight, etc. So make sure those parameters are in line with measurement first. If those parameters have a good agreement with measurement, you may then start varying some model parameters like RcMrtEColi to fine tune your model.
