Long-Term Hydrologic Impact Assessment

Purdue University. College of Engineering.

"Designed to help people quantify the impact of land use change on the quantity and quality of their water. This tool uses the land use and a soil characteristic from the user along with thirty years of precipitation data to determine the average impact that a particular land use change or set of changes will have on both the annual runoff and the average amount of several non-point source pollutants." See also Short-term Runoff Tools that include SedSpec, an expert system for analyzing runoff and erosion problems, and a database of rainfall depths in the U.S.
