At the most frequently usedentry level, a site visitor explores by looking and learning. As interest evolves, the visitor finds links totechnical levels, and those with a deep interest in a topic will find peer-reviewed documents at the researchresource level. Process-based model scenarios include climate change mitigation practices targeted at dairies.
