One major purpose of the Lake Dillon study was to develop a model that could assimilate information on changes in land use and from this predict changes in the lake, including changes of aesthetic or economic importance. Such a model was developed from the information on the lake and watershed nutrient yields. The Lake Dillon Model consists of three parts, which are shown in diagrammatic form in Figure 62: a land use component, a trophic status component, and an effects component.
