Modeling Fire and Nutrient Flux in the Lake Tahoe Basin
Abstract:Citizens need to understand how their ecosystem works and try to influence its behavior for the common good, but complexity, uncertainty, and cost discourage many communities. In the Lake Tahoe Basin, organizations and individuals are leveraging the community's high interest in lake clarity and fire danger to construct complex, dynamic models for adaptive management. Models show citizens how the ecosystem works so that they can make intelligent decisions about the desired future condition of their ecosystem and determine how the costs and benefits will be distributed.
