H036:
Coupled Human-Natural Systems Modeling to Evaluate Reliability, Resiliency and Sustainability of Ecosystem Services





Session ID#: 29427

Session Description:
Globally, population growth and increasing demand for food and services necessitate an increasingly productive agricultural sector, and compel the expansion of human interference into natural areas. Increasingly, these managed areas pose risks to public health, impair water quality and other valued ecosystem services. Overexploitation of water resources for food production limit availability and accessibility of water for other valued ecosystem services. However, holistic approaches that evaluate the full range of benefits and tradeoffs among many ecosystems services are still lacking. Of particular interest to regulatory and management agencies is the understanding of feedbacks, spatial and temporal dependencies, legacy effects, time lags and management. In this session, we solicit contributions that elucidate the complex interactions of constituent subsystems, and their integration through coupled models capable of representing human decisions (e.g. economic, cultural and social) and natural (e.g. biological, climatic and hydrologic) subsystems.
