AQUATOXFederalEnvironmental Protection AgencyUnknown -- maybe public domain? They just say it's "open source".http://water.epa.gov/scitech/datait/models/aquatox/index.cfm3/23/20128/1/2009AQUATOX is a simulation model for aquatic systems. AQUATOX predicts the fate of various pollutants, such as nutrients and organic chemicals, and their effects on the ecosystem, including fish, invertebrates, and aquatic plants. This model is a valuable tool for ecologists, biologists, water quality modelers, and anyone involved in performing ecological risk assessments for aquatic ecosystems.Training materials and presentations available; also, there is an email listserv for users. Excellent documentation appears to be available too. The software requires Windows 98, 2000, NT, or XP.
