Languages of publication



Environmental models are mathematical expressions that describe systems by capturing relationships between systems variables. Information from models is viewed as simplified concepts of environmental issues, thereby making for easy understanding by policy makers; this way decisions on environmental issues are quickly arrived at. This review discusses the types and development of mathematical models and provided examples of some models useful in environmental analysis.
