Abstract: An estimation of the nonpoint sources of fecal coliform (FC) has been formulated as an inverse parameter estimation problem, using FC observation data from the receiving waters. An inverse algorithm was integrated into the three-dimensional transport model, HEM-3D. The modified Gauss-Newton method was used for the optimal estimation of the loads. The approach is straightforward and requires less effort in modification of the existing hydrodynamic model. Model experiments were conducted to investigate the feasi…
