Description: Technical University of Košice, Department of Environmental Engineering, Košice, Slovakia. The main aim of this paper is to develop a model for pollutant concentration prediction in a stream. The developed model that determines nitrogen and phosphorus concentrations in a river is based on a dimensional analysis. Applications of dimensional analysis to water quality modelling are presented, pointing out possibilities of applying this methodology in water quality research. We investigate how dimensional analysis can be applied to water quality modelling and which benefits it can bring to researchers in this area. The models were developed, calibrated and evaluated using measured data from the River Laborec in eastern Slovakia.
