PRAIRIE, Pollution Risk from Accidental Influxes into Rivers and Estuaries, is a software package developed by AEA Technology plc. It is designed to enable the assessment of risks to water quality from chemical spills into rivers. This Guidance document has been produced as an aid to occasional or first time users of PRAIRIE who do not require the detailed information available in the PRAIRIE User’s Guide (AEA 1993) or the modelling report (AEA 1996). This document contains the bare essentials, i.e. sufficient information to run the code successfully and obtain meaningful results, in the form of simple, step-by-step examples. Guidance is also given on how to use the PRAIRIE databases to greatest effect and avoid some potential pitfalls.
