Abstract for: Environmental Roundtable and Environmental SIG Annual Meeting

The Environmental Special Interest Group welcomes everyone to join us for a discussion about modeling and analysis of environmental and natural resource systems. The Environmental SIG is interested in human activities in the natural environment, including sustainable development, ecology, climate change, energy transition, renewable resources management, water policy, food security, and many other topics. The methods used by the members include the system dynamics and other dynamic modeling approaches, simulation gaming, experimentation in decision analysis, and mediated, collaborative approaches to model building and analysis. This roundtable will be used to discuss SIG planning issues (representation, communication, etc.), research priorities, collaborations, and any other topics of interest to the group.
