Project

Management and maintenance MAMBO/STONE

Within this project the models MAMBO and STONE are being managed and maintained. These two models are used for the evaluation of the national manure policy.

Abstract

Because of the new element in the fertilizer regulations –differentiation of phosphate- the calculation models MAMBO (for manure production and distribution) and STONE (for the emission of nitrogen and phosphorus to soil and groundwater) had to be adjusted in 2010 and 2011. The goal of this project is to manage and maintain the MAMBO and STONE-model by means of 1) version management of model concepts and software, 2) up-to-date documentation and 3) the maintenance and readiness to keep direct knowledge and experience available to the models.
