Description

The FRAMES-3MRA modeling system developed at the EPA Office of Research and Development, Ecosystem Research Division consists of a collection of 17 science-based models that together simulate the release, fate and transport, exposure, and risk associated with land-based disposal of solid wastes (3MRA) and a collection of system processors that act as a modeling infrastructure that facilitates the development and application of environmental models and assessments (FRAMES -- Framework for Risk Analysis in Multimedia Environmental Systems). The surface water overland flow model in the FRAMES-3MRA system requires computation of upstream and downstream overland flow areas associated with particular parcels of land where solid wastes are disposed. This presentation will discuss the algorithms developed at Idaho State University to identify these upstream and downstream flow areas; and the implementation of the algorithms in a plug-in to the open source MapWindow GIS software tool.
