A model shell (ROSS3) which does visualization, data management, and modeling transport of oil and chemical spills in inland waters all within a single integrated unit is presented. Numerous visualization functions are available not only for analysis of results but also for analysis of data that is input to the model. These input data can be active when the model is run so that the results are superimposed on various bathymetry data. The user can combine these functions to debug the model and analyze the results. This approach is much more effective, faster, and convenient than the conventional approach of having a pre-processor, model, and post-processor.
