Range Encroachment Model User's Guide
Byron M. Garton
Encroachment of urban development upon military installations can be expected to have an impact on the Army's costs and ability to fulfill its missions due to issues relating to noise complaints, reduction of natural buffer land surrounding installation boundaries, light pollution effects on nighttime training operations, and other potential impacts to operations on installations. This model attempts to predict the effect of urban encroachment for several scenarios and various Department of Defense (DoD) installations. This document describes the process of executing the Range Encroachment Model, as it exists at the time of this writing, within the common computational environment established under the software integration effort of the Integrated Climate Assessment for Army Enterprise Planning work package.
