AMBER Version 4.5 Launched at Japanese Workshop

Version 4.5 of the AMBER compartment modelling software has just been released by Enviros and Quintessa featuring a variety of enhancements, such as the inclusion of an import/export facility to facilitate its use in combination with other codes.

AMBER has now been applied by 57 organisations in 23 countries to a wide range of environmental modelling problems, ranging from the disposal of radioactive waste to the fate of organophosphates in the soil. To correspond with the release of version 4.5 and to provide an illustration of the wide range of problems to which AMBER has been applied, a workshop, attended by 21 users from Japan and South Korea, was held in Yokohama (Japan). In addition, AMBER training courses are being provided for a range of clients during 2003 in China, Hungary, Lithuania, and South Africa.
