Constituent modelling concerns the modelling of the concentrations or discharge loads of water quality variables. These might include particulate (e.g. sediment, particulate nutrients) or soluble (e.g. salt, dissolved nutrients) components, or physical characteristics of the water (e.g. temperature, acidity). In , constituent modelling is likely to be required only in cases where water quality variables form an integral part of any .
The water quality constituent most likely to be required is salt. Any saltload modelling is likely to take place as a post-processing step (i.e. after landscape and river modelling) using fixed-source concentrations routed conservatively.
