proaches for impact prediction is that decisions for a project or activity must use the best available predictive technology in view of the location, size, and type of project or activity, as well as the budget available for the environmental impact study. In that regard, sophisticated mathematical models may not be used due to the need for extensive data input and model calibration. Accordingly, a range of approaches is usually necessary in conducting an environmental impact study for a project or activity.
