Abstract

A synthesis and integration of data gathered at the Imnavait Creek catchment in the form of up-to-date simulation models was a major goal of the R4D program sponsored by the Department of Energy (Chap. 1, this Vol.). Models were proposed as research tools to test our basic understanding of the structure and function of arctic ecosystems, as a means for providing initial management assessments of potential response to energy-related development, and as a vehicle for extrapolation of research results to other arctic sites and landscapes (NRC 1982). Similar desires for the use of models as natural resource management tools have been expressed in ecosystem science for over 20 years (Hammond 1972; Cooper 1976; Loucks 1985; Slocombe 1993; Kaufmann et al. 1994). While significant progress has been made, much work is still required before truly integrated models will be able to effectively summarize and illustrate the complex interactions affecting physical-biological-social systems, particularly within a management framework (e.g., Pickett et al. 1994).
