Lecture/Seminar Simulating human-environment interactions 2017-03-20 15:30:00
Description

Dr. Chris Bone
Assistant Professor, Geography Department, University of Oregon

Climate change and natural resource management have produced unprecedented challenges to our planet’s terrestrial and aquatic environments. These challenges call for interdisciplinary science approaches that aim to understand the multi-scale interactions and feedbacks between social and ecological systems. Simulation modeling offers a platform for facilitating this form of interdisciplinary science by engaging diverse perspectives in the creation of conceptual and computation representations of socio-ecological systems, and by providing tools for proposing and evaluating potential alternative futures under different environmental management scenarios. In this research talk, I will explore the use of simulation modeling as an interdisciplinary methodology, present results from an interdisciplinary project on large scale forest disturbance, and describe a how geographers are in a position to lead the way forward in pursuing a ‘model thinking’ approach for addressing the world’s environmental challenges.
