Accurate wetland models are crucial to better understand and to better design and restore wetlands. In order to develop such models, an in-depth understanding of wetland hydrology, chemistry, and biology is required. This chapter aims to provide a general overview of the most important wetland characteristics such as evapotranspiration (ET), nutrient transformations, and biological degradation processes as well as the current methods used to model these complex processes and their advantages and disadvantages.
