Comprehensive mathematical models can successfully be used in order to find out whether some critical levels of the environmental pollution (for example, critical levels established in the European Union) are exceeded or not. Exceeded critical levels of the environmental pollution may cause different damages on eco-systems, vegetables, animals and, what is perhaps most important, on human health. Therefore, different measures have to be taken if the critical levels of the environmental pollution are either already. exceeded or will be exceeded in the near future. This is a difficult task, because the measures that have to be done are normally very expensive. The decision about what kind of measures are to be taken should be made after many runs of the available mathematical models with different scenarios. The questions of the reliability of the model results and the choice of a sufficiently large set of scenarios will be discussed in this talk. The conclusions will be illustrated by some results obtained in several comprehensive environmental studies.
