Food Chain Models to Assess Exposures
The EPA Center for Exposure Assessment Modeling (CEAM) distributes simulation models and database software designed to determine exposure levels and effects of environmental contaminants on organisms which make up the food chain.
The following food chain models were developed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency in conjunction with other government, academic, and commercial institutions. To find out more about a particular model, click on a hyper-linked model name in the table below. The models listed are available for download and are subject to the CEAM distribution and support policy.
