Modeling
Lagoon Contaminations
In this model contaminations are assumed to follow exponential growth with a constant generation time. The calculated changes are most precise when close to zero and have growing errors when their absolute value increases.

Table 1: Additional Variables and Parameters used for the calculation of the number of mutated sequences List of all paramters and variables used in the analytical solution of this model and for calculations with the interactive webtool. When possible values are given.

Symbol Value and Unit Explanation
$t$ [h] Time
$c_{X}$ >relative units Contamination concentration
$\Phi_{L}$ [volumes/h] Flow rate of the lagoons
$t_{X}$ [min] Generation time of contamination, time in which it doubles
