Models are widely used in water management. MARS developed the Model Selection Tool to give users an overview of the applicability of widely used models for river basin management. Models can be filtered by category through tick boxes and pull-down menus on the left side-panels. Models meeting the selection criteria are then shown to the right. The selection can be easily cleared by using the CLEAR button.
The general characteristics of each model (e.g. open source, domain, space and time resolution) and its applicability for different water categories (lakes, rivers, etc.); hydromorphology, physico-chemistry and biology are summarised in a factsheet which includes contact information and website links. These factsheets are shown by selecting a model.
