EPA: Surface Water Models to Assess Exposures
The EPA Center for Exposure Assessment Modeling (CEAM) distributes simulation models and database software designed to quantify movement and concentration of contaminants in lakes, streams, estuaries, and marine environments.
The following surface water models were developed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency in conjunction with other government, academic, and commercial institutions. To find out more about a particular model, click on a hyper-linked model name in the table below. The models listed are available for download and are subject to the CEAM
distribution and support policy.
