***Please distribute to other interested parties.***
The Ecosystem-Based Management (EBM) Tools Network is very pleased to announce tool demonstration webinars on the Coral Reef Scenario Evaluation Tool (CORSET) by Jessica Melbourne-Thomas of the University of Tasmania on May 26 and 27. The demonstration is being offered at two different times including a Pacific Island “friendly” time. Dates and times and information on registering is below. The webinar system will be enabled an hour prior to the start of each webinar to allow users to test their systems.
Demonstration of Coral Reef Scenario Evaluation Tool (CORSET) by Jessica Melbourne-Thomas of the University of Tasmania (May 26/27, two times- see below). The Coral Reef Scenario Evaluation Tool is a generic, biophysical model for coral reef systems which couples dynamics from local to regional scales. Interactions between benthic and consumer functional groups at local scales (hundreds of metres to kilometres) are linked across regional scales (hundreds of kilometres to thousands of kilometres) by larval dispersal. The approach is bottom-up; simple components are combined to create a portable framework which can be applied for reef systems anywhere in the world. Model components and outputs are understandable for non-experts, but the system is able to generate complex, emergent patterns. Moreover, there is the facility to incorporate larval connectivity data from sophisticated dispersal models. CORSET is equally applicable as a research tool or as a decision support tool for coral reef management. Learn more at https://reefscenarios.org/.
