IM3: Integrated Multisector, Multiscale Modeling

This innovative modeling project explores how human and natural systems and landscapes in the United States co-evolve over the 21st century in response to compounding short- and long-term influences. We are currently studying the interactions of energy, water, land, and urban systems in response to these influences: climate, including severe heat waves and drought; population change and urbanization; socioeconomic factors; energy transitions; and technology change.
Keywords human-natural system interactions, adaptation, climate impacts, drought, energy transitions, modeling, multiscale, multisector dynamics, urbanization
