CEE 597 – Risk Analysis and Management Homework Assignment #8 Sensitivity Analysis, Multi-Media Modeling and Pollutant Transport Readings Models of pathways from source to targets (Packet: Stevens & Swackhamer, p. 257 ; McKone, p. 263 ; Marshall et al., p. 287 ) Environmental Transport (Davis and Cornwell; packet p. 269 ) Overview (ATSDR Public Health Assess. Guidance Manual, 1992; packet p. 311; general reading) “Sensitivity and Uncertainty Analysis” (Stedinger, packet page 549); see also Howard. 543 Homework Assignment for FRIDAY, April 4, 2008 1) Stevens and Swackhamer discuss multimedia problems. Consider that you are part of a modeling team which should develop a model to convert ambient air concentrations of a particular organic compound like dioxins into the concentration in milk from dairy cows. Consider the various environmental concentrations you would want to estimate as a function of the air concentration: on the leaves of grass, in the soil and in the soil water, in the grass itself (or parts of the grass), and through the cow from ingestion and inhalation and into the milk. Use Stevens and Swackhamer as an example as how to proceed.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
