A one-dimensional water column model is constructed to simulate dissolved oxygen dynamics
in a shallow lake populated with submersed macrophyte vegetation. The MCPLANT
(Modeled C++ Plant Layers Approximating Natural Theory) model constitutes a macrophyte
growth model concomitant with a kinetic description of processes involved in producing
and consuming dissolved oxygen. Photosynthetic production of dissolved oxygen by macrophytes
is considered as a principal source in the water column; respiration and decay are
principal sinks of dissolved oxygen. Environmental data and lake trophic status are principal
inputs to the model.
