CalTOX Parameter Documentation

Chemical Parameters

LinkDescription
datref.exe
Size 63K
This self-extracting file contains an Microsoft Excel® spreadsheet that appears almost identical to the DatCal spreadsheet except literature references are provided for each parameter for each chemical. Most of the citations are available from the scientific literature or government sources. However, all of the parameters for nine chemicals are based on reports prepared under contract to the Department of Toxic Substances Control. These reports are the downloadable Adobe Acrobatl® files shown below.

Landscape Parameters

LinkDescription
lanscap.pdf
Size 122K
This Adobe Acrobat® file contains the document The Distribution of Landscape Variables for CalTOX. This document describes how the default parameter distribution those parameters related to the landscape were determined. The relevant Geographical Information Systems (GIS) methodology and scientific literature are cited in this document. This is a 28-page document in a 122K file.
