ECAME: A Software for the Evaluation of the Quality of Estuarine and Marine Waters for the Preservation of Flora and Fauna


Objective: The objective of this research was the development of the ECAME software which analyzes the quality of estuarine and marine waters. Materials and Methods: The development of the software has its bases in the calculation and interpretation of mathematical modeling for parameters as: BOD, pH, dissolved oxygen, thermotolerant coliforms, nitrates, phosphates, total suspended solids and chlorophyll α. The software integrates a series of logarithms established by equations calibrated through a series of curves function based on a constant value previously established. Findings: The equations, weights and computational modeling were carried in the Java programming language, which presents a graphical interface to enter data generates a value that indicates the status of the water as: optimum, adequate, acceptable, inadequate and poor. In addition, describes the percentage of reliability of the analysis. It is concluded that the development of applications to determine the quality of the water is a step forward for the multidisciplinary research already integrates knowledge of mathematics, physical-water chemistry and computer science. Application/improvements: The water quality indexes (ICA) are represented by numerical values. These are interpreted by ranks, which give an overview of the status of water quality on a specific point using mathematical calculations. The indexes facilitate the handling of data; avoid fluctuations in measurements that alter the results of the environmental trends. 

Keywords: Curves of Function, Development, Equations, Indicators of Water Quality Parameters
