Bioaccumulation and Aquatic System Simulator (BASS)
Entry ID: USEPA_BASS

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The Bioaccumulation and Aquatic System Simulator (BASS) is a Fortran 90
simulation model that predicts the population and bioaccumulation dynamics of
age-structured fish assemblages which are exposed to hydrophobic organic
pollutants and class B and borderline metals that complex with sulfhydryl
groups (e.g., cadmium, copper, lead, mercury, nickel, silver, and zinc). BASS's
bioaccumulation ... View entire text

MODELS >COMPONENT PROCESS MODELS Parameter Definition

Quality Numerical integration of BASS's differential equations can be performed using
either an Euler or Runge-Kutta integrator. These methods offer users two
distinctly different options with respect to software performance and
execution. Although Euler methods may often allow for fast model execution,
they cannot assess the accuracy ... View entire text
