Abstract
While long-term, global climate change has received the attention and concern of the world’s governments and populations, less consideration has been given to the short-term seasonal and inter-annual changes in climate likely to greatly influence the management of water, food, and energy resources. The Office of the Secretary of Defense and the United States Army Corps of Engineers seek to develop a web-based tool to facilitate planning stability operations based on predictions of climate change. In response, Aptima proposes to develop PreCISE Models, a web-based decision aid that presents the predictions of uniquely-linked models of weather and human social behavior in an intuitive way that will promote planning stability operations.
