The Department of Bioscience in Silkeborg has developed a new QGIS-based tool (WET: Water Ecosystems Tool), which enables virtual experimentation with aquatic ecosystems. The tool wraps around advanced models that describe a wide range of physical, chemical and biological processes. WET eases the adaptation of models to individual lakes and drinking water reservoirs, and the tool may be used for research, teaching and management purposes. The concept behind WET has recently been published by Nielsen et al. (in Environmental Modelling and Software). The website wet.au.dk has just been launched, which provides additional information and download instructions.
