The Problems Of Modeling The Behaviour Of Chemicals In A Soil Environment
The application of new mathematical models to several case studies are described. A linked European scale multimedia model describes the behavior of POPs under steady-state or dynamic conditions. Future efforts will be directed towards dynamic runs, utilizing fully dynamic emission patterns. The future improvements of such a model will include a more sophisticated parameterization of the vegetation compartment and investigations of model parameter sensitivities.
