SERAFM - A Process-Based, Steady-State Modeling System
Entry ID: EPA_SERAFM


Summary
Abstract: SERAFM is a steady-state, process based mercury cycling model designed specifically to assist a risk assessor or researcher in estimating mercury concentrations in the water column, sediment, and fish tissue for a given water body for a specified watershed. SERAFM predicts mercury concentrations in these media for the species Hg0, HgII, and MeHg. The model runs three simultaneous scenarios. One ... View entire text
