The Version 4.5 release of the model includes the following:

The model files are found in 1 zipped file: v45.zip. This zip file has the following subdirectories and files:

1.     Examples – Model application examples include DeGray Reservoir (including sediment diagenesis and vertical algal movement), Bonneville Dam- Columbia River (STDG-Example), Spokane River, Columbia Slough estuary, Long Lake, Multiple water body cascade, Detroit Reservoir, and particle tracking in a reservoir example.

2.     Executables – The executables for the preprocessor and the model in this directory were compiled using Intel Visual FORTRAN compiler for 64-bit systems.

3.     Control File Converter Utility – this is a model executable and instructions on how to create an Excel version of the control file from legacy files

4.     W2Tools – This is the W2 post-processor by Dynamic Solutions-International, LLC (www.ds-international.biz).  They have provided an installation routine that includes both the post-processor and the W2ControlGUI (whcih no longer works).  When the user selects W2L output (the old VPL output), the resulting post-processing file is used by W2Tool for all post-processing tasks that include contour plots, animations, profile plots and time series plots. A brief user manual is included showing many of the features of this post-processor as well as a directory that shows how to take field data and plot field data and model results in the post-processor. There is a zip file with an example from DeGray reservoir on how to include model predictions versus field data for reservoir profiles.

5.     Source – This directory contains the source code for the preprocessor and model written in Fortran. The compiler settings and files necessary to compile using the Intel compiler are also included using the Intel Fortran compiler. Generally, we use the following compiler settings: /O2 [maximum speed in Intel] and default real is double precision. Also, for the following subroutines we had to use /O1 optimization: init-cond.f90 and init-u-elws.f90. For the preprocessor, the windows source code is compiled using a QuickWin application rather than a console application. We use the debug version for the released executable. The generic preprocessor code should work compiled as a console application.

6.     Waterbalance – This is the windows waterbalance utility that is described in the user manual. The purpose of this code is to approximate the waterbalance for a reservoir or lake by computing flows (positive and negative) that will allow the model predicted water level to agree to water level data for a reservoir.

7.     Waterbalance Console application [to be added]– This is a console application of the waterbalance utility that can be used in batch files and has a few more options than the windows waterbalance utility. Executables, an example input file, and a user manual are included.

8.     Excel macro utility for writing files in W2 format from Excel - This directory contains an Excel macro that aids in writing our CE-QUAL-W2 compatible files from within Excel. There is a short user manual describing how to use the macro. This macro was developed by Jeffrey Gregory, Civil Engineer, USACE, Nashville District.

9.     User Manual – This is a series of files for the User Manual Parts 1-5 in searchable pdf format. Release notes are included in Part 5 of the User Manual.

10.  USGS Documentation for the Auto Port Selection Algorithm and Examples – Technical report for the new USGS algorithm for auto port selection and 4 example problems using the USGS algorithm for auto port selection. These examples though are for versions 3.72-4.2.

11.  Sediment diagenesis documentation – reports and documents explaining the sediment diagenesis model in Version 4.
