The table below contains links to software and related documentation we developed as research tools, instructional aids, and decision-support systems for managing soil and water resources.
All of this software was written in Java and utilizes the Sun Microsystems Java Web Start technology. It operates on a variety of operating systems including Windows, Linux, Mac OS X, and Solaris. Mac OS X users can run the software by simply clicking on the link labeled "Run Program". Other users must first install the Java Runtime Environment (Java Web Start is included) software available free of charge at http://java.sun.com. Once that installation is completed, any of the programs can be run by clicking on the "Run Program" link.
This software is our most current software with the greatest number of features. Some of the software is available in applet form as well. A summary of differences between applets and Web Start applications is available here. We strongly urge you to use this Web Start form of the software.
This interactive software forms part of the resources developed to utilize aquifer vulnerability assessment as a framework for teaching soil physics. An overview of the approach and comments on its advantages and disadvantages is available here as a pdf file. The resources were developed in part with funding from a USDA Educational Challenge Grant.
