IMPACT is a new computerized approach that has been developed by the U.S. Forest Service to simplify the work of land-management agencies in conducting environmental impact analyses and in preparing impact statements. IMPACT consists of an information base and an interactive computer program. The information base is a complex network of short descriptions of environmental conditions linked together in cause-and-effect relationships associated with a variety of forest management activities. The information base also includes literature references useful in analyzing specific environmental effects. IMPACT is being used on several national forests.
