In this EPA document the conceptual, theoretical, and mathematical foundations for a predictive screening model were presented. In this current volume we present a User's Guide for the computer model that implements the probabilistic model. The model is a predictive screening model called Virulo, so named because of its use of the Monte Carlo method for predicting virus fate and transport. This document presents a general overview of the parameters used and how they can be modified to suit a particular predictive modeling scenario. In addition, a non-technical overview of the conceptual modeling approach is given. Some example applications of Virulo are presented.
