BlueM is a software package for river basin management. It allows for the integrated simulation, analysis and optimisation of discharge and pollution loads in rural and urban catchments, including processes in the water body, using physically-based hydrologic approaches. BlueM is the result of continuous development efforts based on model concepts that have been pursued at ihwb for many years and have already been implemented in various applications.

BlueM components:

  • BlueM.Sim (hydrologic computational core – with OpenMI-interface)
  • BlueM.Wave (time series management and analysis tool)
  • BlueM.Opt (optimization based on evolutionary algorithms and sensitivity analysis)
  • BlueM.Analyser (real-time data monitoring and evaluation tool – coupled via OpenMI)

The software package BlueM is freely available after registration. It is also possible to access the source code for research purposes (requires an aggreement with ihwb).
