Abstract:

This report gives a concept description of the Environmental Early Warning System EEWS developed by the U.S. Army Construction Engineering Research Laboratory CERL. The EEWS is an interactive computer system designed to give the Department of Army Headquarters and Major Command planning and decision-making personnel a way to quickly find potential environment-related problems associated with proposed changes in troop strength, mission, facilities, natural resource management, and land use. The system is designed to help Army managers during the earliest stages of Army planning and is not a substitute for current planning methods or Enivronmental Assessments or Impact Statements. Included are a system description from the users point of view, a brief explanation of how the system calculates results, and descriptions of the systems tabular and location-specific data handling capabilities.
