A major goal of the Direct/Delayed Response Project (DDRP), a project within the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Aquatic Effects Research Program (AERP) is to project potential changes in surface water chemistry in lakes in the northeastern U.S. and streams in the Mid-Appalachians and southeastern U.S., over the next 50 years as a function of current and alternative levels of acidic deposition. The DDRP projection are based on various types of simulations models that predict surface water and soil chemistry. All models- statistical, empirical, mechanistic, logical or others - represent a simplification or abstraction of the real world. A major question associated with the application of an model is how to prepare subset, and aggregate, or lump, data so that they will represent the processes and system being simulated. The models used in the DDRP require physical and chemical data on watershed soils as part of the model inputs. In conjunction with the DDRP, soil surveys were conducted in selected watersheds in each of the three regions. The document describes and discusses the approaches used in the DDRP for aggregating soil chemical and physical data for use in the various DDRP analyses.
