Back to PEOPLE

Brian uses ARIES to model, identify, and assess benefits that nature provides to people, analyze trade-offs among stakeholders, and develop information that can be applied to planning, management, and ecosystem restoration decisions, reducing exposure to natural hazards, such as flooding, and addressing resource use and equity of distribution.
