Short Course Materials
A one-day short course on AQUATOX was presented as part of the Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry (SETAC) North America 31st Annual Meeting, held November 7-11, 2010 in Portland, OR.
The objective of the short course was to familiarize users of diverse backgrounds with the capabilities of AQUATOX for use in a variety of regulatory settings. The course included comparisons with other dynamic ecosystem models used for risk assessment. Examples of applications covered the impact of nutrient, sediments, and toxic organics on a variety of ponds, lakes, reservoirs, rivers, and an estuary.

Occasionally the US EPA offers a comprehensive three-day course. It is similar in scope to the one-day course except that it covers more aspects of the model in greater depth, with diverse hands-on exercises. Such a course was held on AQUATOX Release 3.1 beta in December 2010 and November 2011 at US EPA Region 6 in Dallas, TX, and the Columbia River Intertribal Fish Commission in Portland, OR, respectively.
