Background/Overview The Joint Ecosystem Modeling (JEM) community of the Florida Everglades has a proven track record of collaborating with scientists and resource managers from Federal and State agencies, universities, and other nongovernment organizations to identify needs and develop tools in support of decision making for a sustainable ecosystem. We propose extending this approach to aid scientific research and resource management in the Hurricane Sandy impact areas. We will use the first year to: cultivate a network of science partners in the region through regular meetings and partner communication, including members of the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS), the National Park Service (NPS), [...]


Project Goal(s) Expand the ecological modeling, data visualization and data dissemination capcity developed under JEM to the Sandy impacted area.
