Workshop on Integrated Environmental Modeling of Estuarine Systems
Davis, California, May 21-22, 2015
Welcome everyone to the Integrated Environmental Modeling for Estuarine System Management Workshop. The workshop conveners are looking forward to your participation in what promises to be a transformative meeting. We will address new approaches for integrating models and data analytics to accelerate system understanding. We will also consider approaches for bridging the persistent gap between modeling system complexity--physical, chemical, biological, social, economic--and supporting water operations, flood protection, and restoration decision making. The Workshop will offer several opportunities for you to express your own ideas and help emerge new directions.
The attached video by Dr. Peter Goodwin, lead scientist of the Delta Science Program summarizes the Workshop objectives and we think it will motivate your interest and stimulate ideas. We have also attached two papers by key workshop presenters. The paper by Rob Argent (BofM Australia) discusses conceptual modeling as fundamental tool for organizing complex system information. The second paper by Scott Peckham (Colorado University) introduces component integrated environmental modeling concepts. Finally we are also attaching the final workshop program.
We look forward to your participation on - .
Sincerely, the organizing comm
