GLOBOX - Software and data - CML

Abstract:GLOBOX is an executable software model for deriving the global multimedia fate, exposure, and effects of emissions as a function of characteristics of substances (e.g. Kow), of the environment (e.g. average temperature), and of human exposure characteristics (e.g. food consumption patterns). It is largely based on the European Union model EUSES (version 2.0). The GLOBOX model has a global range, however, and it is spatially differentiated at the level of individual, interconnected countries, seas, and oceans. GLOBOX consists of three main modules: * an impact-category independent fate module; * a human-intake module, applicable to all impact categories that are related to human intake of chemicals; * an effect module, in which effect-related parameters can be introduced for every separate impact category.
