BIOCHLOR, Natural Attenuation Decision Support System, Version 2.2, User’s Manual Addendum

BIOCHLOR Version 2.2 includes the following new features: rate constant decision support, source decay, and animation. A rate constant decision support feature was incorporated to help users estimate rate constants required for model calibration. In addition to simulating a source of constant concentration, BIOCHLOR Version 2.2 models a decaying source, which allows the simulation of both plume expansion and contraction. Lastly, an animation feature has been incorporated, which permits the visualization of plume behavior. This document describes these new features. Users should continue to refer to the existing BIOCHLOR Version 1.0 User’s Manual (Aziz et al., 2000a) as the primary source of information about BIOCHLOR.
