Models are widely used in water management. There was, however, no simple tool presenting of overview of the applicability of widely used models for river basin management. Therefore MARS developed this Model Selection Tool. Models can be filtered either through tick boxes or pull down menus in the left panels whereby the models meeting the selection criteria is immediately shown to the right. The selection can be easily cleared by using the CLEAR button.
For each model general characteristics (e.g. open source, domain, space and time resolution), applicability for the various water categories (lakes, rivers, etc.), hydromorphology, physico-chemistry and biology are summarised in a factsheet including contact information and links to websites. These factsheets are shown by selecting a model.
