**OLAF** (**O**ptimal **L**ocating **A**ir Polluting
**F**acilities) is a general software package for
modeling and optimizing the effects of a low toxic air pollutant on the
inhabitants of different land-based ecosystems.
The pollution load can be traced through different ecotrophic levels,
while health effects are quantified on the basis of detailed cytodynamic
effects in different organs and tissues.
The software system does not only evaluate quantitatively the effects of a
proposed decision, but uses an efficient optimization technique to optimize
the location of a polluting facility with respect to the adverse effects of
the total pollution load.

Alternatively, you might want to take a look at the online version (html version 2.0, for those who have to use specific browsers)
