This introductory primer applies system modeling in general and computer modeling in particular to basic environmental problems and applications. Students will learn how systems behave while constructing quantitative models involving such concepts as reservoirs, flows, controls, feedbacks, steady states, time constants, limits and exponential growth. The added feature of STELLA II demo software for model building and simulation, now available in Macintosh and Windows versions, allows students to create, manipulate, and run their own models. The winner of the 1993 EDUCOM award for best curriculum innovation in the atmospheric sciences, this module includes exercises throughout, a tutorial training guide for the software, and a glossary of terms. For teachers, an Instructor's Manual is also available.
