ABSTRACT: A back-propagation algorithm neural network (BPNN) was developed to synchronously simulate concentrations of total nitrogen (TN), total phosphorus (TP) and dissolved oxygen (DO) in response to agricultural non-point source pollution (AGNPS) for any month and location in the Changle River, southeast China. Monthly river flow, water temperature, flow travel time, rainfall and upstream TN, TP and DO concentrations were selected as initial inputs of the BPNN through coupling correlation analysis and quadratic polynomial stepwise regression analysis for the outputs, i.e. downstream TN, TP and DO concentrations. The input variables and number of hidden nodes of the BPNN were then optimized using a combination of growing and pruning methods. The final structure of the BPNN was determined from simulated data based on experimental data for both the training and validation phases. The predicted values obtained using a BPNN consisting of the seven initial input variables (described above), one hidden layer with four nodes and three output variables matched well with observed values. The model indicated that decreasing upstream input concentrations during the dry season and control of NPS along the reach during average and flood seasons may be an effective way to improve Changle River water quality. If the necessary water quality and hydrology data are available, the methodology developed here can easily be applied to other case studies. The BPNN model is an easy-to-use modelling tool for managers to obtain rapid preliminary identification of spatiotemporal water quality variations in response to natural and artificial modifications of an agricultural drainage river.

Freshwater sustainability. Secrets that became open: the previously unknown or underestimated facts and principles

Freshwater sustainability. Secrets that became open: the previously unknown or underestimated facts and principles relevant to water quality.
New conceptualization: how ecosystems improve water quality. A series of publications that provided a clear scientific analysis and picture.

The scientific problem and its scientific solution.

There is a water crisis: a deficit in freshwater supply in many countries. In future, the deficit will increase. Necessity for a solution of the problem of food supply, and the problem of energy supply will increase the deficit even to a greater extent. 1,000 litres of water is used to produce one kilogram of wheat.  Moreover, an additional problem is that what we need is  more than just some amount of water. We need not only some amount of water but also we want the water to be of proper quality. It is really very important that we need water of good quality. Is there any solution at all? One of prerequisites in finding a way out is to get a better insight into how the proper water quality is formed by the natural forces of aquatic ecosystems. An innovative analysis was made in a series of scientific publications which provide a clear system of factors and processes that lead to improving water quality (water self-purification). To exploit this system and to benefit from it, we need to understand it.
