Tetiaroa Island Digital Ecosystem Avatar (IDEA)

idea

Tetiaroa IDEA is a place-based data science infrastructure and computational platform for scenario-based planning. The Tetiaroa IDEA will model the complex feedbacks between climate change, management actions, public policy, and ecosystem services across the island’s coupled marine-terrestrial landscape.

For researchers, Tetiaroa IDEA will highlight data needs and help generate hypotheses. For decision makers, it will simulate the outcomes of different management actions under likely environmental scenarios. It is a collaboration with the international IDEA Consortium and Moorea IDEA.
