This record describes the WAMSI KMRP Project 2.2.8: Knowledge Integration and Management Strategy Evaluation (MSE) Modelling of the Kimberley Region. The project explores the possible and desired futures of the Kimberley region using two computer models, Ecopath with Ecosim (EwE) and ALCES. In this project the future is defined to 2050.
EwE was used to characterise the trophic structure, ecosystem attributes and impact of fishing and climate change in the region. ALCES modelled terrestrial land-use and landscape dynamics and interfaced with the marine ecosystem dynamics (EwE) model to generate output on how these ecosystems interact and change over time. The purpose of using these models was to integrate existing and new knowledge about the Kimberley system and to provide an estimation of the likely impacts of different stressors on the land (ALCES) and marine (EwE) environments.
This metadata record relates to the input and outputs for EwE and lists only the inputs form ALCES. Refer to the additional metadata description for details on the ALCES component.
