  1. Working Group Reports Working Group 1 Software System Design and Implementation for Environmental Modeling Gene Whelan, Ph.D. Olaf David, PhD. U.S. EPA-ORD Colorado State University/USDA-ARS Athens, GA Ft. Collins, CO Interagency Steering Committee on Multimedia Environmental Modeling 2013/2014 Annual General Meeting Hosted by the U.S. Department of Energy Forrestal Building Washington, DC February 25-26, 2014

  2. Purpose Foster the exchange of information about environmental modeling tools, modeling frameworks, and environmental monitoring databases

  3. Objectives • Harmonize existing and evolving environmental modeling systems • Investigate and provide guidance and deployable tools for use by multiple frameworks • Promote the standardization of data exchange protocols
