Abstract : This report provides user and programmer information supporting the Optimal Programming of Army Lands (OPAL) model, which was designed for use by trainers, Integrated Training Area Management (ITAM) coordinators, and land rehabilitation offices. The model provides an environment for testing how different combinations of training schedules, haying and burning schedules, and weather affects the quality of the lands vegetation, which provides training realism and erosion protection.
