Modelling pollution in the Great Lakes: a review

Introduction

Unit image

This is the fifth and final unit in the MSXR209 series on mathematical modelling. In this unit we revisit the model developed in the first unit of this series on pollution in the Great Lakes of North America. Here we evaluate and revise the original model by comparing its predictions against data from the lakes before finally reflecting on the techniques used.

This unit, the fifth in a series of five, builds on ideas developed and introduced in Modelling pollution in the Great Lakes (MXR209_1), Analysing skid marks (MSXR209_2), Developing modelling skills (MSXR209_3) and Modelling heat transfer (MSXR209_4).

This unit is an adapted extract from the Open University course Mathematical modelling (MSXR209). [Tip: hold Ctrl and click a link to open it in a new tab. (Hide tip)]
