The manuscripts concerning the CESSM methodology are out. In order, they are:

Reiter, M. A., G. R. Parsons, R. W. Scarborough, C. Fan, and S. M. Thur. 2006. An interdisciplinary conceptual metamodel for the St. Jones River watershed, Delaware: Development, results, and implications. J. Environ. Monit. Restor. 2:38-50.

Reiter, M. A. 2004. A simple fuzzy logic approach to analyze integrated interdisciplinary “four-component” conceptual resource management models. Interdisc. Environ. Rev. 6(2):1-13.

Example narrowed models and models from the CESSM manuscript (may require Internet Explorer) are available here.

The first draft of the Coupled Ecological-Societal Systems Model (CESSM) for the St. Jones River watershed is available. You can download the zipped 2/20/03 version of the model as an Excel file (with matrices), or view an on-line version.

Click this link to download the zipped version of the conceptual model (provides a clearer file and better formatting, but will require an unzipping utility).

If you can't use the zipped version, click this link to browse the on-line version of the conceptual model (spacing, figures, etc. may be less than optimal, and may require Microsoft Explorer). Contact Dr. Reiter at BCU with questions or comments.
