Biotic Ligland Model vs. Water Effects Ratio
« All Publications

The biotic ligand model (BLM) and Water Effects Ratio are tools that can mechanistically predict the bioavailability of a variety of metals under the large range of water chemistry conditions that are observed in nature. They can be used to develop site-specific water quality criteria for use in determining effluent permit limits, or other water quality assessments. Learn from case studies where these methods are being employed and which is most frequently more conservative.
