APES - Agricultural Production and Externalities Simulator

The Agricultural Production and Externalities Simulator is a modular simulation system targeted at estimating the biophysical behavior of agricultural production systems in response to the interaction of weather and different options of agro-technical management. APES is an application which uses several components being developed to offer simulation options for different processes of relevance in agricultural production systems. Models are described in the associated help files of components, and a shared ontology is being built on the web. Such components, which are designed to be inherently re-usable, that is, not targeted specifically to a given modelling framework, are also meant to be a concrete option to share modelling knowledge with other projects and the scientific community. APES includes also several applications and tools, targeted either to APES use or to components development.

The Integrated Catchment Management System (ICMS) is aPC-based software product, developed to facilitate the rapid development and delivery of catchment science to catchment managers. It implements a 'layered' approach to development, and delivery, through the use of four components. These are:ICMSBuilder– the central engine; Models embedded in the ICMS MDL(model libraries) – proprietary, free-ware and newly developed models; ICMS Projects– suites of linked models, and their data; ICMS Views – DLLs which provide tailored views of Projects

JDEVS is the outcome of the current PhD work of Jean Baptiste Filippi and it is still under development. JDEVS implements Zeigler's DEVS paradigm and it is particularly suited for modeling and simulation of natural complex systems.

SEMoLa (Simple, Easy to use, MOdelling LAnguage) is a non procedural meta-language to build simulation models for continuous/event driven, deterministic/stochastic systems, developed at the Agricultural and Environmental Sciences Department, University of Udine (Italy). While it is very generic, it has been successfully used to model biological, ecological and agricultural systems, at different scale and complexity level. The SEMoLa language is integrated in a simulation environment that simplifies the tasks of model building, simulation and documentation; moreover it provides calibration, validation, data management, neural network building, unit verification features and others.

The Tarsier modelling framework is a modular collection of Windows software that enables fast development and deployment of a wide variety of environmental computing tools. These tools include simulation models, data storage and analysis tools, and visualization systems. The system supports many structures for the organization of quantitative environmental information, including: gridded maps, networks, time series, and simple lists of geographic locations. Upon these are built analytical tools covering topics such as interpolation, statistics, sampling, and data transformation. At the top level are modules that implement a variety of simulation models, from cellular automata to stream pollutant routing models to large-scale spatial catchment hydrology models. The homepage is currently under re-development
