Abstract : The study assesses Air Force needs and capabilities for environmental consequences modeling, Air Force model application capabilities, and proposes resources available to overcome identified deficiencies. Needs for environmental information and analytical techniques were studied, and strategies proposed by which the modeling capabilities could evolve toward a comprehensive environmental information network, user community, and data exchange. The recommended information network would be known as the Air Force Environmental Model and Data Exchange (AFEMDEX). The technical report consists of four volumes. Volume 4: MODEL REVIEW AND INDEX - AIR, MULTIMEDIA AND OTHER MODELS, PLUS DATABASES. A brief introduction to air models, by application category, precedes an extensive directory of air quality models. The directory further provides reviews of multimedia, geology and soil, ecology, socioeconomic, exposure, noise, waste disposal, chemical spill, and traffic models. Further, a brief introduction to databases is followed by reviews for water, air, chemical and noise databases. Reviews of models presented include (in general): (1) model name; (2) sponsor/developer; (3) contact; (4) model availability; (5) model abstract; (6) citation references; (7) current user (8) implementation hardware/software; (9) input requirements; (10) output products; (11) synopsis of major parameters.
