A conceptual description to given for developing the environmental impact demand equations that generate the results displayed on the Environmental Early Warning Systems EEWS. EEWS, developed for the U.S. Army Forces Command FORSCOM, is an interactive computer system designed to give FORSCOM planners and decision-makers a quick way to find potential environment-related problems associated with proposed changes in troop strength, mission, facilities, natural resource management, and land use. It is intended to help Army managers during the earliest stages of planning. To support the systems predictive capabilities, potential impacts and demands must be estimated. This report describes how these estimates can be made and how to format them for EEWS compatibility. Included are the steps in carrying out the background research on an area of interest, the way to translate this research into EEWS form, and how to format the data so that, when it is given to a data-loading expert, a smooth transition of responsibility results, with the work entirely documented.
