To take better advantage of the water quality monitoring systems and modeling processes practices in Amazon reservoirs, this study carried out a strategic methodology to couple these two tools. As a result, Information Monitoring and a Modeling Cycle are presented in this paper. The authors integrate the well-known Processes of Simulation and Systems of Monitoring & Assessment practices and incorporated improvements realized by efforts over the past 15 years, that is, UN/ECE Task Force on Monitoring & Assessment, and National Water Quality Monitoring Council and Brazilian Reservoir (NWQMC/USA) monitoring programs.
