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.

SLEUTH

The SLEUTH model, also known as the Clarke Cellular Automata Urban Growth Model or as the Clarke Urban Growth Model, is intended to simulate urban growth in order to aid in understanding of how expanding urban areas consume their surrounding land, and the environmental impact this has on the local environment.

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).

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.

EcoWin 2000 (E2K)

E2K makes use of an object-oriented programming (OOP) approach to implement ecological models for aquatic systems. The basic underlying structure is that of a spatial (1D, 2D and 3D) framework of boxes, within each of which the relevant biogeochemistry and population dynamics are resolved.

Fishery Analyst for ArcGIS 9.x

Fishery Analyst is an ArcGIS 9.x extension developed to effectively analyze and visualize temporal and spatial patterns of fishery dynamics. The main functions are quantitative estimation and visualization of catch and effort and their variation in space and time, analysis of fishing vessel utilization, data quality control, and deriving information on the location of important economic and threatened species.
