EPA Center for Exposure Assessment Modeling (CEAM)

The EPA Center for Exposure Assessment Modeling (CEAM) provides proven predictive exposure assessment techniques for aquatic, terrestrial, and multimedia pathways for organic chemicals and metals.

EPA Center for Exposure Assessment Modeling (CEAM)

Groundwater Models

Groundwater Models
  • Quantifies the movement of subsurface water
  • Provide inputs to subsurface contaminant transport models

Surface Water Models

Surface Water Models
  • Models contaminant movement and concentration in lakes, streams, estuaries, and marine environments

Food Chain Models

  • Provides tools for tracking the movement of contaminants through food chains and for estimating chemical impacts on exposed biota

Multimedia Models

  • Quantifies the impacts of contaminants as they travel through more than one of these environments

TMDL Models and Tools

  • Facilitates the development and implementation of Total Maximum Daily Loads(TMDLs)
  • Includes enhancements, complex models like HSPF, and simple data-driven models like load duration curves (LDCs)
