IAN Integration and Application Network Conceptual Diagrams

The IAN symbol libraries contain over 1500 custom-made vector symbols (in 32 categories) designed specifically for enhancing science communication skills. The libraries are designed primarily for use with Adobe Illustrator (requires version 10 or better), however we also offer eps and svg versions for non-Illustrator users.

Differential DPSIR

The differential DPSIR is a tool for integrated ecosystem management and was developed to evaluate impacts on the coastal environment. It consists of an adaptation of the Drivers-Pressure-State-Impact-Response to understand the inter-relations between ecological and economic dynamics of coastal zones.

e-Estuary

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA) is developing e-Estuary, a decision-support system for coastal management. E-Estuary has three elements: an estuarine geo-referenced relational database, associated estuarine and watershed GIS coverages, and tools to support decision-making.

DNDC- Denitrification Decomposition model

DNDC (i.e., DeNitrification-DeComposition) is a computer simulation model of carbon and nitrogen biogeochemistry in agro-ecosystems. The model can be used for predicting crop growth, soil temperature and moisture regimes, soil carbon dynamics, nitrogen leaching, and emissions of trace gases including nitrous oxide (N2O), nitric oxide (NO), dinitrogen (N2), ammonia (NH3), methane (CH4) and carbon dioxide (CO2).

EAR - Ecosystem Assessment & Reporting Tool

By integrating biodiversity, socioeconomic and protected area datasets, the Ecosystem Assessment and Reporting Tool provides a simple, but powerful interface designed to answer questions such as “Which ecosystems are least protected?” “Of these ecosystems, where and how do we need to improve management?” and “Where are the opportunities to most efficiently reduce threats to these ecosystems?” The EAR tool has been designed around The Nature Conservancy’s (TNC) approach for calculating “Effective Conservation” (Higgins et al, 2007).
