Environmental models are simplified representations of complex physical systems. The implementation of any such model, as a computer simulator, involves further simplifications and approximations. The value of the resulting simulator, in giving scientific and practical insights into the functioning of the corresponding physical system, depends both on the nature and degree of these simplifications and also on the objectives for which the model is to be used.
