Integrated environmental modeling: a vision and roadmap for the future

Environmental Modelling & Software, Vol. 39 (January 2013), pp. 3-23,


Integrated environmental modeling (IEM) is inspired by modern environmental problems, decisions, and policies and enabled by transdisciplinary science and computer capabilities that allow the environment to be considered in a holistic way. The problems are characterized by the extent of the environmental system involved, dynamic and interdependent nature of stressors and their impacts, diversity of stakeholders, and integration of social, economic, and environmental considerations. IEM provides a science-based structure to develop and organize relevant knowledge and information and apply it to ...


Forestry application of the AHP by use of MPC© software

Forest Systems, Vol. 21, No. 3. (28 November 2012), 418,


We present an example of the application of the AHP decision-making approach to forest management, by use of MPC© 2.0 software. The example considered is that of a forest services company interested in buying a timber harvester. The company had preselected four different machines as possible alternatives, and established 11 different criteria involved in the decision, grouped into four categories (economic, environmental, social and technical). The decision-making process was undertaken using MPC© 2.0 software tools, which enable establishment of criteria on ...


Movement of outbreak populations of mountain pine beetle: influences of spatiotemporal patterns and climate

Ecography, Vol. 31, No. 3. (June 2008), pp. 348-358,


Insect outbreaks exert landscape-level influences, yet quantifying the relative contributions of various exogenous and endogenous factors that contribute to their pattern and spread remains elusive. We examine an outbreak of mountain pine beetle covering an 800 thousand ha area on the Chilcotin Plateau of British Columbia, Canada, during the 1970s and early 1980s. We present a model that incorporates the spatial and temporal arrangements of outbreaking insect populations, as well as various climatic factors that influence insect development. Onsets of eruptions ...


Delivering environmental decision support systems: software tools and techniques

Environmental Modelling & Software, Vol. 12, No. 2-3. (January 1997), pp. 237-249,


A suite of “desirable features” for Environmental Decision Support Systems (EDSS) is proposed by identifying the general attributes of environmental systems which are of importance to modelling and simulation, and the different categories of users of EDSSs. With these features as a guide, a review and discussion of the approaches to delivering Environmental Decision Support Systems is presented. The two most efficient approaches are: (i) the use of modelling and simulation software tools, and (ii) the use of model integration and ...


Designing and building real environmental decision support systems

Environmental Modelling & Software, Vol. 19, No. 9. (September 2004), pp. 857-873,


The complexity of environmental problems makes necessary the development and application of new tools capable of processing not only numerical aspects, but also experience from experts and wide public participation, which are all needed in decision-making processes. Environmental decision support systems (EDSSs) are among the most promising approaches to confront this complexity. The fact that different tools (artificial intelligence techniques, statistical/numerical methods, geographical information systems, and environmental ontologies) can be integrated under different architectures confers EDSSs the ability to confront complex ...


Environmental decision support systems


Context-aware Citation Recommendation

In Proceedings of the 19th International Conference on World Wide Web (2010), pp. 421-430,


When you write papers, how many times do you want to make some citations at a place but you are not sure which papers to cite? Do you wish to have a recommendation system which can recommend a small number of good candidates for every place that you want to make some citations? In this paper, we present our initiative of building a context-aware citation recommendation system. High quality citation recommendation is challenging: not only should the citations recommended be relevant ...


Making use of the ecosystem services concept in regional planning - trade-offs from reducing water erosion

Landscape Ecology In Landscape Ecology (2014), pp. 1-15,


In this article we demonstrate how to integrate the ecosystem services concept into regional planning using the example of a case study in Saxony, Germany. We analysed how the reduction of water erosion as a regulating service impacts six other ecosystem services. Ecological integrity, provisioning services (provision of food and fibre, provision of biomass), regulating services (soil erosion protection, drought-risk regulation, flood regulation), and the cultural service landscape aesthetics are taken into account. Using a decision support software, we found that ...


Design and function of the European Forest Fire Information System

Photogrammetric Engineering & Remote Sensing, Vol. 79, No. 10. (1 October 2013), pp. 965-973,


The European Forest Fire Information System (EFFIS) is a modular decision support system that monitors forest fires at a continental scale. It delivers real-time, multi-dimensional data on forest fires to civil protection and fire fighting services in Europe, North Africa, and the Middle-East. Since its inception in 2001, EFFIS has evolved into the central reference point for pan-European forest and wildfire information, and this paper describes and current applications demonstrate the state-of-the-art fire information systems that provide data to civil protection ...

Flood management in a complex river basin with a real-time decision support system based on hydrological forecasts

Vol. 48, No. EPFL-BOOK-172964. (2011)


In alpine valleys with strong urban development, river training works for flood safety become more and more difficult to implement because of economic and environmental constraints. Thus flood management has a great importance especially in river basins equipped with storage power plants having a large retention potential. To reduce the flood risk in the Upper Rhone River basin in the Cantons of Vaud and Valais, the MINERVE flood forecast system was developed. It aims an optimized flood management by taking advantage ...


Use of decision support systems for improved planning and operation of large dams along the Victoria Nile



This research proposal considers the regulation of Lake Victoria, Kyoga and Albert in East Africa, from a wider ecological and stakeholder perspective. An accelerated decrease of lake Victoria Levels that can be attributed to a period of drought and exceesive release of water to satisy hydropower demands now poses significant risks to aquatic ecosystems, navigation facilities, and livelihoods of Equatorial Lake communities and other riparian states that depend on the Nile. There is thus an urgent and current need to focus on the improvement of the ...


Decision support systems for water management: the Lake Como case study

European Journal of Operational Research, Vol. 21, No. 3. (September 1985), pp. 295-306,


We review an application-oriented study on the management of Lake Como, a natural multipurpose reservoir in Northern Italy. The emphasis is on the Decision Support System that resulted from this study and which is now being used by the manager to take his decisions on the amount of water to be released each day from the lake. The decision support system is based on the optimal solutions of complex multiobjective mathematical programming problems. ...


The effects of level of automation and adaptive automation on human performance, situation awareness and workload in a dynamic control task

Theoretical Issues in Ergonomics Science, Vol. 5, No. 2. (1 March 2004), pp. 113-153,


This paper extends previous research on two approaches to human-centred automation: (1) intermediate levels of automation (LOAs) for maintaining operator involvement in complex systems control and facilitating situation awareness; and (2) adaptive automation (AA) for managing operator workload through dynamic control allocations between the human and machine over time. Some empirical research has been conducted to examine LOA and AA independently, with the objective of detailing a theory of human-centred automation. Unfortunately, no previous work has studied the interaction of these ...


Level of automation effects on performance, situation awareness and workload in a dynamic control task

Ergonomics, Vol. 42, No. 3. (1 March 1999), pp. 462-492,


Various levels of automation (LOA) designating the degree of human operator and computer control were explored within the context of a dynamic control task as a means of improving overall human/machine performance. Automated systems have traditionally been explored as binary function allocations; either the human or the machine is assigned to a given task. More recently, intermediary levels of automation have been discussed as a means of maintaining operator involvement in system performance, leading to improvements in situation awareness and reductions ...
