Ecological Forecasting (Hosted by NCEAS)

Principal Investigators:

James S. Clark

This workshop will develop the science agenda for an initiative in Ecological Forecasting. Within this initiative we define Ecological Forecasting as the process of predicting the state of ecosystems, ecosystem services, and natural capital based on scenarios for climate, changing atmosphere and nutrient cycles, and socioeconomic activities. Forecasts address areas ranging from regions to the globe and time horizons of 10 to 100 years. The unprecedented threats to human civilization posed by continuing deterioration of ecosystem services... more
