Electronic copies of all four volumes of this report are included on the available CD-ROM that accompanied this report. The files are all Microsoft WORD document files (xxx.DOC), or Corel DRAW presentation files (xxx.SHW). Due to the large size of some of the files containing figures and graphical displays, the electronic copy of each volume consists of several files. All files for a given volume are collected in directories on the CD-ROM identified by the report volume number.

Calibrated parameter files for the intensively-studied FISH catchments and an executable copy of the MAGIC:FISH model are also included on the available CD-ROM that accompanies this report. The model was calibrated as described in Chapters 2 and 7 for the three intensively-studied FISH catchments. The executable model code and the average parameter file for each site (xxx.PAR) are stored in the MAGIC-FISH directory on the CD-ROM. The input files for the calibration, the successful fuzzy calibration parameter sets, and the summary statistics and model goodness-of-fit for the calibrations (xxx.OUT) are saved on the CD-ROM in separate sub-directories for each site (Paine Run, Piney River and Staunton River).
