Home of the Aquatic Ecosystem MOdelling Network (AEMON)

Mission statement

Through a common forum for aquatic ecosystem modellers we aim to:


       i Advance collaboration within the aquatic ecosystem modelling community
       ii
Enable increased use of models for research, policy and ecosystem-based management
       iii Facilitate a collective framework using common (standardised) code to ensure that model development is incremental
       iv
Increase the transparency of model structure, assumptions and techniques
       v Achieve a greater understanding of aquatic ecosystem functioning 
       vi Increase the reliability of predictions by aquatic ecosystem models
       vii Stimulate model inter-comparisons including differing model approaches
       viii Avoid ‘re-inventing the wheel’, thus accelerating improvements to aquatic ecosystem models
          

AEMON is all about:

- sharing knowledge

- accelerating progress

- improving models
