    Aims and Scope


    There is a growing interest in the field of modeling and quantitative assessment of environmental problems. For some years now results of environmental models and assessment analyses have been influencing environmental regulation and policies at local, national and international levels. Therefore the need to understand both the power and limitations of environmental models and quantitative assessment techniques has never been greater. The journal aims to build a bridge between the scientific community's understanding of key environmental issues and the decision makers' need to influence relevant policies and regulations on the basis of the best available information.

    Environmental Modeling & Assessment strives to achieve this by publishing high quality, peer-reviewed papers that may be regarded as either instances of best practice, or as studies that advance the evolution and applicability of the theories and techniques of modeling and assessment. Consequently, Environmental Modeling & Assessment will publish high quality papers on all aspects of environmental problems that contain a significant quantitative modeling or analytic component, interpreted broadly. In particular, we are interested both in detailed scientific models of specific environmental problems and in large scale models of the global environment.

    We invite models of environmental problems and phenomena that utilise, in an original way, the techniques of ordinary and partial differential equations, simulation, statistics and applied probability, control theory, operations research, mathematical economics, and game theory.

    Emphasis will be placed on the novelty of the model, the environmental relevance of the problem, and the generic applicability of the techniques used. Generally, papers should be written in a manner that is accessible to a wide interdisciplinary audience.

    However, Environmental Modeling & Assessment will also provide a forum where researchers can publish a complete mathematical description of important environmental models together with the accompanying analysis and underlying assumptions. Occasionally, papers that are primarily theoretical will be accepted, provided that the results deliver conceptual insight into some environmental problem.

Springer may use the article in whole or in part in electronic form, such as use in databases or data networks for display, print or download to stationary or portable devices. This includes interactive and multimedia use and the right to alter the article to the extent necessary for such use.

    Authors may self-archive the Author's accepted manuscript of their articles on their own websites. Authors may also deposit this version of the article in any repository, provided it is only made publicly available 12 months after official publication or later. He/she may not use the publisher's version (the final article), which is posted on SpringerLink and other Springer websites, for the purpose of self-archiving or deposit. Furthermore, the Author may only post his/her version provided acknowledgement is given to the original source of publication and a link is inserted to the published article on Springer's website. The link must be accompanied by the following text: "The final publication is available at link.springer.com".

    Prior versions of the article published on non-commercial pre-print servers like arXiv.org can remain on these servers and/or can be updated with Author's accepted version. The final published version (in pdf or html/xml format) cannot be used for this purpose. Acknowledgement needs to be given to the final publication and a link must be inserted to the published article on Springer's website, accompanied by the text "The final publication is available at link.springer.com". Author retains the right to use his/her article for his/her further scientific career by including the final published journal article in other publications such as dissertations and postdoctoral qualifications provided acknowledgement is given to the original source of publication.

    Author is requested to use the appropriate DOI for the article. Articles disseminated via link.springer.com are indexed, abstracted and referenced by many abstracting and information services, bibliographic networks, subscription agencies, library networks, and consortia.
