Functional, management-type model which can be used with inputs presented as distributions rather than single values. Fully validated. Main inputs are rain, evaporation, and others can be derived from particle size distribution data. Main outputs are solutes in defined soil layers, solute leached (amount and concentration), soil water and water loss.
