Abstract The user-friendly shell SWASH, acronym for Surface WAter Scenarios Help, assists the user in calculating pesticide exposure concentrations in the EU FOCUS surface water scenarios. SWASH encompasses five separate tools and models: (i) FOCUS Drift Calculator, calculating pesticide entries through spray drift deposition, (ii) PRZM-3, calculating pesticide entries through run-off, (iii) MACRO, calculating pesticide entries through drainage, (iv) TOXSWA, calculating the behaviour of pesticides in small surface waters, and (v) SPIN is a central database for storage and editing of pesticide properties. The SWASH database contains information on projects and runs created by the user. This report gives a detailed description of the necessary flow of data between the various models, to make them communicate smoothly with each other. It also specifies the installation requirements for the MACRO, PRZM and TOXSWA models. The MACRO model uses an MS-Access database to store its substance and run information, while PRZM makes use of separate data files. TOXSWA uses the central SWASH database. After completing a SWASH session the user should manually perform simulations with the three individual models
