software package simulates the hydrodynamics and water quality behavior
of large scale water bodies such as bays, estuaries,

also provides for dynamic flooding and draining of coastal lowlands.
It is a
highly modular program which has been applied to a wide range of

planning, disposal and management of urban and industrial wastes,
environmental impact and, pollution management and compliance.
The user interface is through the conversational FREEFORM
language which provides for simple English-like command syntax and
allows command-line execution of the program. FREEFORM is a common
language used by other ACRi software as well. Please see ANSWER Examples
