Development History of CORMIX

In 1986 CORMIX development began at Cornell University under contract from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (Environmental Research Laboratory, Athens, GA; Dr. Thomas Barnwell, Program Officer).

Following the initial development of the CORMIX1 subsystem (Doneker and Jirka, 1990) other system features were gradually added in the ensuing years.

We thank the numerous agencies, academic institutions, researchers, clients and developers who have helped in the support and development of CORMIX.
