Final OpenNESS Annual Meeting in Smolenice, Slovakia

The international environmetrics community introduced to OpenNESS

This week Alaska is hosting the 23rd Annual Conference of the International Environmetrics Society. During a technical session entitled ‘The evidence base for ecosystem management decisions’ Jan Dick from the Centre for Ecology and Hydrology (CEH) presented work examining different ecosystem service indicators. She compared indictor selected by local land manager’s with data derived from pan-European databases or modelled output.

The joint work of OpenNESS partners Joachim Maes, Maria Luisa Paracchini and Grazia Zullian, (JRC with CEH colleagues) was presented along with a few slides introducing future work to be undertaken within the OpenNESS project. Ron Smith (CEH) also presented examples of Bayesian Belief Networks in a separate talk and highlighted the role of the OpenNESS project to test such statistical tools within real world case studies.
