New in version 3.00!
This model is useful for examining the relative importance of each loss and transport process and for screening and comparing chemicals. The results of changes in chemical and soil properties may be explored by modifying the input data. Incremental changes in input properties can be used to obtain a sensitivity analysis.
Features of the Soil model:
Provides a database of chemicals and chemical properties.
Permits temporary additions/changes of chemicals and their properties to a simulation.
Permits permanent additions, changes and deletions of chemicals and their properties to the database.
Provides a database of environments and environmental properties.
Permits temporary additions/changes of environments and their properties to a simulation.
Permits permanent additions, changes and deletions of environments and their properties to the database.
Provides context-sensitive Help.
Displays and prints the Soil model calculations, as performed by the program.
Allows the printing of simulation tables and the summary diagram.
Allows the program results to be saved as a comma separated value (csv) file viewable by standard spreadsheet software.
This program was based on the following publications:
Mackay, D., Stiver, W. 1991. Predictability and Environmental Chemistry. Chapter 8: pages 281-297
