An enhanced version of the semi-empirical, spatially distributed emission and transport model PhosFate implemented in R and C++. It currently supports suspended solids (SS) and particulate phosphorus (PP). A major feature is the allocation of substance loads entering surface waters to their sources of origin, which is a basic requirement for the identification of critical source areas and in consequence a cost-effective implementation of mitigation measures.
