'Scenarios to Simulation' Workshop Explores Regional Landscape Change
Last month, as part of the Scenarios, Services, and Society Research Coordination Network (S3 RCN), the Harvard Forest and the Science Policy Exchange collaborated with Dartmouth College to help convene a unique land-change workshop, "Scenarios to Simulations."
The workshop brought together academics to explore scientific methods for translating narrative scenarios of future landscape change into numeric estimates. Their work will inform complex simulation models that ultimately will explore the consequences of sustainable futures for the New England landscape.
Kathy Fallon Lambert, Director of the Harvard Forest's Science & Policy Integration Project and the Science Policy Exchange, is the S3 RCN Principal Investigator. S3 RCN landscape modeling efforts are led by Harvard Forest senior ecologist Jonathan Thompson.
The S3 RCN is funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation.
