Atlantis - An Ecosystem Box-Model
Entry ID: Atlantis

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The Atlantis ecosystem model was developed by Dr Beth Fulton, an ecosystem modeller with the Wealth from Oceans National Research Flagship. She leads a marine ecosystem modelling team based at CSIRO Marine and Atmospheric Research in Hobart, Australia.

The Atlantis model has been applied to more than 15 ecosystems, primarily in temperate regions of Australia and the United States to investigate:

-appropriate strategic management options for regional fisheries
-the effects of complexity on model performance
-robust indicators of the ecological impacts of fisheries
-regional marine planning
-spatial management to meet conservation goals.
