About the West Lake Real-time Model

DSI developed the West Lake Real-time Hydrodynamic & Water Quality Model as an example of a real-time data and modeling facility to serve the scientific community in Hanoi, Vietnam. The major goals of the model are to:

  • Better understand West Lake hydrodynamics.
  • Visualize meteorological impacts on temperature and water quality in West Lake.
  • Raise awareness in the community about water quality issues.
  • Help regulators understand tools that can be developed to solve water quality issues in Hanoi.

The model uses measured wind speed, direction and temperature. However, inflows and some other boundary conditions to the model currently assume seasonal data as real-time measured data is unavailable. Detailed information on the system can be found here.
