Validatietoolbox for VMM

Development Of A Validation Toolbox For The Water Quality Models Of Vmm

In 2022 we did a consultancy assignment for VMM in Belgium. The aim of this assignment was to implement a set of validation methods for VMM’s operational water quality models in a Python package within the existing VMM infrastructure.


The developed Python package makes it possible to retrieve simulation results from the different VMM models, link them to observations and analyze the agreement of between the simulation results and with the observations.

Specific attention

In this assignment, there was close cooperation with the VMM employee regarding the development, of the package and the testing and demonstration of the package. Specific attention was given to the documentation and the structure of the code facilitating with a view to smooth transfer so that the delivered code can also be used by VMM employees.
