Abstract
Environmental management of at-risk sites requires decision-makers to integrate heterogeneous technical information with stakeholder values. Current models exist to specifically address the technical or numerical environmental conditions, and separately to provide decision analysis. A comprehensive, decision-support platform is required to seamlessly integrate these many factors and estimate their impacts. We propose to develop the PLatform for ANalyzing Environmental Tradeoffs (PLANET) software system to combine rich, data-driven environmental models with dynamic forecasting models of stakeholder opinions and the multi-criteria analysis and decision-support tools necessary for rigorous consideration of environmental management decisions. The system will allow users to input data from many sources; perform analysis using the physical models required to evaluate environmental risks and anticipated outcomes of the intervention alternatives under consideration; forecast the stakeholder opinion development over time; automatically transfer all of these results for use as inputs to MCDA algorithms; and view the results and data as trade-offs and on maps of the area of interest.
