Alternative futures: These are scenario-based assessments of possible future conditions conducted by a collaboration among landscape planners and academic and government scientists. A summary of some projects is in a downloadable document [PDF 973 KB] taken from a poster presented at an US Environmental Protection Agency Science Forum. More details about some projects are contained at their websites.

Biodiversity: These are projects conducted by a collaboration among government scientists from several agencies in the US and Canada, and academic scientists.

Global Grids: Discrete global grids were investigated by the US Environmental Protection Agency, Geography Faculty at Oregon State University, and colleagues from 1989 through 2008.

Accumulated references: References to articles, reports and websites on global grids, spherical tessellations, planar tessellations, and methods for computing on these surfaces.

Research website: This work was initiated by the US Environmental Protection Agency as part of the development of their Environmental Monitoring and Assessment Program.

Energy Systems Analysis: The EMERGY concept of evaluating all goods and services has been developed by Howard T. Odum and his students and colleagues over many decades. An introductory lecture explains the basic concepts of energy systems analysis and emergy with applications to the comparing well-being of nations.

Freshwater fish assemblages: This work was initiated by the US Environmental Protection Agency to develop a dynamic, spatially-explicit simulation model for species pools in stream networks. A page size version of a poster presented at the 2005 Oregon Chapter of the American Fisheries Society annual meeting is available. [PDF 1.8 MB]

Computer Graphics and Spatial Analysis: This is a sample of research from the 1970s and 1980s at the Laboratory for Computer Graphics and Spatial Analysis at the Harvard University Graduate School of Design.
