COMPASS will help dramatically enhance predictive understanding of coastal systems, including their response to short- and long-term changes.
COMPASS-GLM: Great Lakes Modeling
To achieve the COMPASS vision, GLM will focus on overarching long-term science questions:
- What multiscale mechanisms govern the structure, function, and dynamics of coastal systems at different spatial and temporal scales?
- How do coastal systems respond to natural and anthropogenic influences?
- Can we generalize new process knowledge and predictive skill gained at a small number of sites or regions across the observed diversity of coastal systems?
