Environmental Modeling

Environment image.

Environmental modeling helps improve the understanding of natural systems and how they react to changing conditions, such as exposure to hazardous substances and the temporal and dose effects from the exposure. Environmental modeling deals with representation of processes that occur in the real world in space and time. The processes that transform the environment through time are mostly described by dynamic models based on differential equations. Environmental modeling may be used purely for research purposes and improved understanding of environmental systems or for providing an interdisciplinary analysis that can inform decision making and policy.
