The integrated coastal zone management project made use of a number of interconnected models. The spatial model for future population distribution and land-use provided input for both the hydrological model and the waste load model. These provided input to the hydrodynamic model of Manila Bay which in turn was connected to the water quality model for BOD, nutrients, primary production and dissolved oxygen. Finally, a habitat model indicated suitability for ecotopes and other spatial uses.
