Landscape customization
If I want to customise the toxicity results to a specific watershed is it enough to change the entries of the continental scale in the "Landscape & indoor data" sheet?
If the watershed is in Europe for example should I consider the Europe entries as the global scale?
Thank you!

Adaptation of landscape data

USEtox is a nested model that requires the global scale compartments for a closed mass balance and, hence, the global data are required in addition to any parameterized continental scale. What might become important when scaling the continental scale to a single watershed is that the residence time of water might also have to be  adjusted.
