Island Avatars: Simulating Social-Ecological Systems | April 13, 2016 | 11:00 a.m.-2:30 p.m. | 190 Doe Library, UC Berkeley

We will present how ETH Zurich and the University of California are working together to build the first full-scale simulation of a complex social-ecological system. The Island Digital Ecosystem Avatar (IDEA) is an open science initiative to build use-oriented simulations (avatars) of entire systems starting with the island of Moorea, French Polynesia. The Moorea IDEA is a sustainability simulator modeling links and feedbacks between climate, environment, biodiversity, and human activities across a coupled marine-terrestrial landscape. The resulting knowledge and tools will help predict human and natural change at scales relevant to management/conservation actions. We will present progress to date in building this powerful new tool for scenario-based planning, education, and local population engagement.
