Short description: Due to the wide range of different modelling tools used in the project and presence of significant earlier work focusing exclusively on modelling approaches, it was decided not to attempt to be unrealistically prescriptive in the detailed elements of individual modelling approaches. However, there is still a need to document our common understanding regarding the basic approaches to be adopted in the EUROHARP project. As a result, this report is intended as a collation of key text developed during the course of the first two years of the EUROHARP project, together with a reiteration of the agreements reached at several project meetings (Meze, Berlin, Wolverhampton, York, Wageningen, Oslo) during 2002 and 2003. The purpose is simply to bring together all this relevant information in one place to serve as a reference document during the modelling exercise, to accompany the model review document circulated separately. This document may be subsequently revised and updated, access the EUROHARP website (www.euroharp.org) for the latest version.
