Short summary
Nutrient pollution models need to have an appropriate level of complexity and must be applicable at the mesoscale. Here we show the minimum information requirement approach to building models that are used by policy makers to look at the broad-scale effects of their decisions. CRAFT (Catchment Runoff Attenuation Flux Tool) relies on the representation of hydrological flow pathways and how they can be altered. A case study is shown to demonstrate what can be simulated at the mesoscale.
