Different distributed environmental simulation systems are presented. They take advantage of the possibilities of modern network technologies to gather input data, perform simulation and spread the simulation results. The term `distributed' applies in this context both to the simulation, which is a parallel (distributed) simulation on computer networks, and to the fact, that all components (pre- and postprocessing and the simulation models) may reside in different locations and will be accessed via the Web. The systems described use this architecture to a different extent. Based on this it is shown, that it should be possible to build a system which links various data sources, simulation models, visualization and information tools, all of them running possibly remotely on the corresponding hardware. Such a system would form a distributed virtual laboratory
