AquiferSim A groundwater nitrogen transport model that intends to assist answer two main questions: 1) What is the long-term effect of land-use change (such as a conversion from... Read More AquiferSim is a regional-scale model of nitrate transport in groundwater and is part of the research programme ‘Integrated Research for Aquifer Protection (IRAP)’. IRAP members are: Lincoln Ventures... Read More Land Freshwater Nitrate, groundwater, land use
CLUES
Catchment Land Use for Environmental Sustainability
CLUES is a catchment-based model developed to address “what if” scenarios under different land use at large scales. CLUES predicts the impacts of land use changes on river... Read More CLUES is a modelling system for assessing the effects of land use change on water quality and socio-economic factors at a minimum scale of sub-catchments (~10 km2...

NZFARM
New Zealand Forest and Agriculture Regional Model
The primary intention of the development of NZFARM is to provide decision-makers with information on the economic impacts of policy as well as on how a policy... Read More NZ-FARM is a comparative-static, partial equilibrium model of regional New Zealand land use that maximises rural income across a catchment, accounting for the environmental impacts of land use...

CALPUFF
CALPUFF
The CALPUFF model simulates the effects of time and space-varying meteorological conditions on pollution transport, transformation and removal. Read More CALPUFF is an advanced non-steady-state meteorological and air quality modeling system. The model has been adopted by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA) in its Guideline on... Read More Air Quality atmosphere, air quality, pollution, meteorology
HEL
Highly Erodible Land Model
HEL identifies land that is highly erodible. It identifies steep land that is at risk of mass movement. It identified land that should be under forest to... Read More The Highly Erodible Land (HEL) system identifies land highly susceptible to mass-movement erosion using a combination of the erosion terrains derived from the NZLRI database, a 15‑metre digital...

TEC tool
Threatened Environment Classification
The Threatened Environment Classification Tool was created to make LENZ (Land Environments of New Zealand) accessible to key biodiversity managers. It is an extension to LENZ that enables... Read More The Threatened Environment Classification is an interactive GIS tool which helps planners identify and set a value on New Zealand‘s threatened environments. Landcare Research has produced a Threatened... Read More Land Biodiversity LENZ, biodiversity, threatened, land environments
GLEAMS
Groundwater Loading Effects of Agricultural Management Systems
GLEAMS was developed to evaluate the impact of management practices on potential pesticide and nutrient leaching within, through, and below the root zone. It also estimates surface runoff... Read More GLEAMS is a continuous simulation, field scale model, which was developed as an extension of the Chemicals, Runoff and Erosion from Agricultural Management Systems (CREAMS) model. GLEAMS assumes... Read More Land Freshwater leaching, nutrient, pesticide, root zone, soil erosion, sediment yield, hydrology
