Updating the CEMA Oil Sands Pit Lake Model

CEMA Oil Sands Pit Lake Model (OSPLM) incorporated a sediment diagenesis module, tailings consolidation, pore water release, biogenic gas production, bubble release, and salt rejection during ice formation within the CE-QUAL-W2 model Version 3.6 (Cole and Wells, 2008). After a peer review of the OSPLM revealed the need for coding updates and identified several new algorithms that would be useful to the model application (Wells, 2012), the CE-QUAL-W2 has been updated to version 3.71 and will keep it in the recurring code base for future CE-QUAL-W2 updates.
