Development and Application of an Integrated Ecosystem Model


September 2011 - August 2016


The Alaska Integrated Ecosystem Modeling (AIEM) Project is a multi-institutional and multi-disciplinary enterprise designed to meet Alaska land managers’ needs to understand the nature and rate of landscape change. Ultimately, this tool will provide an integrated framework for natural resource managers and decision makers and produce specific scenarios of changes in landscape structure and function that could be used by resource-specific impact models.
