Ecosystem Informatics  Graduate Minor

Print Version Print
College of Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Sciences



This program will be terminated winter 2013 per https://secure.oregonstate.edu/ap/cps/proposals/view/85777

 

An informatics revolution is under way in ecosystem science and natural resources policy and management. Many key research areas—climate change/Earth history, water, astrobiology, Earth hazards, forest/stream processes, ocean ecosystems—are limited by common informatics problems. These include:

These problems are the core of ecosystem informatics, a novel, interdisciplinary approach to education and research that provides a unifying framework for studying complex problems in natural and managed ecosystems.

Ecosystem informatics is at the intersection of:

The power of ecosystem informatics lies in its ability to cut across, and contribute to, a very wide range of interdisciplinary problems affecting Oregon and the world. Ecosystem informatics is based on an approach to problem solving, rather than specific problems. Thus it complements many ongoing cross-disciplinary collaborations at OSU, including climate change/Earth history, water, astrobiology/subsurface biosphere, Earth hazards, forest/stream processes, and ocean ecosystems, which face challenges in ecosystem informatics. PhD graduates trained in ecosystem informatics will be qualified for diverse, well-remunerated jobs that benefit society.
