AguaRio - Version 2.0 - River Self-Purification Modeler
The software can be used not only by government decision-making departments, but also by designing and planning departments, consulting companies and water resources management departments engaged in environmental and water engineering. The modeler also can be used in teaching practice of water pollution prevention and control, Environmental Hydraulics and Environmental Fluid Mechanics in colleges and universities.

● AguaRio2.0 can quickly determine the variation of dissolved oxygen (DO) along the longitudinal direction of the calculated river reaches, describe the degradation processes of carbonaceous BOD (BOD5) and nitrogeneous BOD (NBOD) along the way under the boundary conditions given by users, and also compare with the observed data input by users.
● AguaRio2.0 takes into account many common environmental impact factors in engineering, such as the different types of discharges (concentrated/punctual discharge sources, including tributary contribution and distributed discharge source), BOD in carbonization and nitrification stages, BOD adsorption and flocculation sedimentation, photosynthesis and sediment oxygen consumption, etc..
● The calculation results of AguaRio2.0, including the longitudinal profiles of the change process of DO and BOD in carbonizing stage and BOD in nitrification stage, can be browsed, stored and printed directly by tables and images.
● AguaRio2.0 has a complete help system, illustration and teaching examples, which is easy for users to learn and master. The software is simple and convenient to use, and can quickly provide users with the calculation results of different comparison schemes (under different boundary conditions and physical and chemical parameters).
