Wania Models

The Global Distribution Model (Globo-POP)

New! in 2000

Developed by Frank Wania and Donald Mackay (Trent University, Canada) for the Canadian Department of Indian Affairs and Northern Development, this model is described extensively in a number of journal publications. It is a zonally averaged multi-media model describing the global fate of persistent organic chemicals on the time scale of decades.

The GloboPOP model is a result of collaboration between the Canadian Environmental Modelling Centre and the Wania Research Group.

The POPCYCLING-Baltic Model

Developed by Frank Wania, Johan Persson (Stockholm University, Sweden), Antonio Di Guardo (University of Insubria, Italy) and Michael S. McLachlan (Baltic Sea Research Institute, Germany) as part of the POPCYCLING-Baltic project by the Environment and Climate Research Programme of the European Comission, this model describes persistent organic pollutant fate in the Baltic Sea environment.

The CoZMo-POP Model

This model is a simplified version of the POPCYCLING-Baltic Model designed to describe persistent organic pollutant behaviour in the coastal zone. Like the other two models, it is a non-steady state mass balance model based on the fugacity approach. Environmental input parameters can be varied to describe a particular coastal zone of interest.
