EPA Launches Website for Integrated Environmental Modeling

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has launched a website for integrated environmental modeling. The online tool, called iemHUB, allows scientists to share digital modeling tools, data sets, and other information. Scientists use integrated environmental modeling to predict the spread of pollutants (during oil spills, for example), the effects of development, and other environmental impacts. According to EPA, iemHUB will help scientists from varied backgrounds work together to understand and solve environmental problems. The site currently has over 250 registered members, and is online at
