AQUATOX: A Simulation Model for Aquatic Ecosystems
Entry ID: EPA-AQUATOX
[ Get Service ]
[ Update this Record ]


Summary
Abstract: AQUATOX is a freshwater ecosystem simulation model. It predicts the fate of
various pollutants, such as nutrients and organic toxicants, and their effects
on the ecosystem, including fish, invertebrates, and aquatic plants. AQUATOX is
a valuable tool for ecologists, water quality modelers, and anyone involved in
performing ecological risk assessments for aquatic ecosystems.
