Abstract:
The National Rivers Authority (NRA) acting in association with the Broads Authority and English Nature commissioned Binnie an Partners in January 1993 to develop a hydraulic model of the Thurne Broads system. The specification for this model is included as Appendix A. Development of a hydraulic model was seen as one means of improving the understanding of the factors which control the water quality of Hickling Broad and Horsey Mere. This understanding could then be utilised by NRA, The Broads Authority and English Nature in the development of a catchment management plan for the Thurne Broads. The present knowledge of the factors which control the water quality of Hickling Broad and Horsey Mere is summarised in the background information contained in the specification (Appendix A). This specification also summarises the main objective of this study as being to identify the relative importance of the different sources of water which contribute to the overall water quality of each of these broads. The model was restricted to water flow and salinity as salinity is one of the distinctive features of the water quality of both Broads.
