Environmental Measurements and Modeling

Learn About Models at EPA

Environmental models are used to help guide research and policies at EPA. Modeling provides an abundance of information and can impact programmatic decision making. It allows a small or large amount of data to project details beyond boundaries of the individual values.

Within EPA, the Environmental Modeling (E-Mod) Community of Practice (CoP) helps further modeling at EPA by discussing and sharing current and innnovative modeling practices. The E-Mod CoP brings together modeler developers, users and managers from across EPA to collaborate and help solve integrated environmental modeling challenges.

Below is a list of some models and modeling programs at EPA.
