Manuals and Publications

User Manuals provide the user’s detailed information about the associated model as well as How-To information for setting up the program, creating runs, setting up batch runs and viewing and analyzing output.

 

Note: We are willing to work with volunteers to translate model manuals into other languages. If you are interested, please email epicapex@brc.tamus.edu.
