This project aimed to create an integrated software package to assess the transport of chemical pollutants in the environment. It provided European and national regulatory agencies and industry with a state-of-the-art tool for better prediction of concentrations of chemicals – such as pesticides and industrial pollutants – in waters entering river systems. The software package had three parts: models simulating water runoff from land and the pollutants it carries; a database of information to use with these models (including information on topography, soils, geology and land-use) and mapping software.
