Multiscale modeling of coastal landscape dynamics
Principal Investigator:J. Court Stevenson
Start/End Year:1993 to 1995
Institution:Horn Point Laboratory, University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science
Co-Principal investigator:Robert Costanza, Chesapeake Biological Laboratory, University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science
This project will: assess historical changes in the Blackwater River watershed on Maryland's Eastern shore for the period from 1850 to the present by creating a GIS data base of these changes; create a process based, spatially explicit ecological economic simulation model to help explain these historical changes; and project future changes under various management and climate scenarios using the model.
