OASIS, a decision support system for ground water contaminant modeling, has been developed for the EPA by Rice University, through the National Center for Ground Water Research. As a decision support system, OASIS was designed to provide a set of tools which will help scientists and modelers assess ground water contamination problems. OASIS is a graphical decision support system and was developed around BIOPLUME II, a numerical model which simulates the aerobic degradation of dissolved hydrocarbons in ground water. The OASIS system was developed in the HyperCard environment and, unlike traditional software, contains extensive documentation and help onscreen. Question mark icons throughout OASIS lead the user to further discussion and definitions, thereby allowing the system to be fully operational without the aid of paper documentation. The information in OASIS includes documentation, a hydrogeologic database, two chemical databases, several simple hydrogeologic models, and the BIOPLUME II model with preprocessors and postprocessors. The system was developed for use on Macintosh personal computers and now contains over 1600 screens and 9 megabytes of information.
