Model Form #1
log_{10}(FCBR) =
2.13 + 0.758 log_{10}(TURB)
- 0.293 sin(2π D / 365)
- 0.529 cos(2π D / 365)
where:
- FCBR is computed fecal coliform bacteria, in colonies per 100 milliliters
- TURB is turbidity, YSI model 6136, in formazin nephelometric units
- D is day of year, in the range of integers 1 through 365
