CoMSES Net is dedicated to fostering open and reproducible scientific computation through cyberinfrastructure and community development. We develop and curate resources for model-based science including agent-based modeling tutorials, FAQs, and forums for discussions, job postings, and events.. We also develop and maintain the OpenABM Computational Model Library, a digital repository for code that supports discovery and good practices for software citation, reproducibility and reuse.

Our research group is developing an agent-based simulation tool to understand how human and natural systems interact in response to agricultural best management practices (BMPs). This research will seek to identify and assess the factors influencing farmer’s responses to proposed BMPs, develop simulation tools to link agent-based models of farmer decision making to a hydrological model of nutrient loading, and model scenarios to explore the resilience of watershed systems to changes in [...]
