Integrated assessment of agricultural ecosystems using simulation-optimization and machine learning
Agriculture provides many ecosystem services to human society but is also a major cause of environmental degradation. The key challenge of modern agricultural production is to meet projected increases in global demands for food, water, and energy in sustainable ways. Sustainable agricultural production requires integrated decision-support tools and rigorous assessment methods to improve the efficiency of natural resource management while minimizing its impacts to society and long-term ecosystem health. This dissertation focuses on developing methodology and modeling tools to support decision-making ...
