UNSATCHEM

    Simulates water, heat, carbon dioxide and solute movement in one-dimensional variably saturated media.

    SWMS-3D

      Simulates water and solute movement in three-dimensional variably saturated media.

      SWMS-2D

        Simulates water and solute movement in two-dimensional variably saturated media.

        HYDRUS-1D

          HYDRUS-1D is a Microsoft Windows-based modeling environment for analysis of water flow and solute transport in variably saturated porous media. The software package includes the one-dimensional finite element model HYDRUS (version 7.0) for simulating the movement of water, heat, and multiple solutes in variably saturated media. The model is supported by an interactive graphics-based interface for data-preprocessing, discretization of the soil profile, and graphic presentation of the results.

          HYDRUS

            Simulates water, heat, and solute movement in one-dimensional variably-saturated porous medium.

            CHAIN2D

              Simulates the movement of water, heat, and multiple solutes in two dimensional variably-saturated porous media.

              Environmental Policy Integrated Climate (EPIC) Model

                Environmental Policy Integrated Climate (EPIC) model is a cropping systems model that was developed to estimate soil productivity as affected by erosion. EPIC simulates approximately eighty crops with one crop growth model using unique parameter values for each crop. It can be configured for a wide range of crop rotations and other vegetative systems, tillage systems, and other management strategies. It predicts effects of management decisions on soil, water, nutrient and pesticide movements, and their combined impact on soil loss, water quality, and crop yields for areas with homogeneous soils and management.

                NUOnet (Nutrient Use and Outcome Network) database

                  The Nutrient Uptake and Outcomes (NUOnet) database will be able to help establish baselines on nutrient use efficiencies; processes contributing to nutrient losses; and processes contributing to optimal crop yield, nutritional and organoleptic quality. This national database could be used to calculate many different environmental indicators from a comprehensive understanding of nutrient stocks and flows.
