      “Sustainability Science is a field defined by the problem it addresses rather than the disciplines it adopts… It serves the need for advancing both knowledge and action by creating a dynamic bridge between the two."

      -- Clark, W.C. 2007. Sustainability Science: A room of its own. Proceedings of the National Academy of Science 104: 1737-1738

      The sustainability modeling group is a multi-disciplinary group of researchers from a range of departments within the University of Maryland developing new tools, combining existing tools, and applying them to real world sustainability problems.

      We hope that you find our research of interest. Feel free to contact any of us if you want to lean more. Meanwhile, enjoy what we have already compiled for you. We intend to update the website by adding new applications, courses, and models.
