An integrated environmental modeling infrastructure has been developed to automate data acquisition to meet data input requirements of a confederation of models and to execute these models within a system workflow. The purpose of this document is to describe what support documentation is available to help train users in the use and application of the software.


This document provides a Quantitative Microbial Risk Assessment (QMRA) primer that organizes QMRA tutorials. The tutorials describe functionality of a QMRA infrastructure, guide the user through software use and assessment options, provide step-by-step instructions for implementing a mixed-use, watershed-based QMRA, and suggest the order for reading and reviewing the tutorials.
