Interactive Software for Simulating Water and Chemical Movement in Unsaturated Soils
Entry ID: CHEMFLO

[ Get Service ]
[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The movement of water and chemicals into and through soils has a large impact
upon our environment and the entire ecosystem. Understanding these processes is
of great importance in managing, utilizing, and protecting our natural
resources. This software was written to enhance our understanding of the flow
and transport processes. It was written primarily as an educational tool. As a
result it is highly interactive and graphics oriented. This version of the
software expands on that of Nofziger et al (1989) by providing a graphical user
interface and other enhancements. The software enables users to define water
and chemical movement systems. The software then solves mathematical models of
these systems and displays the results graphically.
