The Environmental Bundle provides a complete set of resources for educators, students and anyone concerned about environmental sustainability to develop their Systems Thinking and dynamic
modeling skills. Using these tools, you’ll learn how Systems Thinking helps policy-makers, researchers, and scientists find solutions to complex problems.
Included in this Bundle:
The Environmental Bundle inculdes Stella Architect with one year of support and maintainance, Modeling for Environmental Sustainability and
Modeling the Environment, Second Edition by Andrew Ford.
Modeling for Environmental Sustainability sets the stage by demonstrating how the Systems Thinking framework can help to develop a greater understanding of the issues surrounding environmental
sustainability. Online access to recorded instruction, handouts, and sample models will build your understanding of climate change dynamics, limits to growth, water supply/quality issues, and the
dynamics of renewable versus non-renewable resources.
Modeling the Environment, Second Edition by Andrew Ford is the leading introductory
text in the field of interdisciplinary modeling of environmental systems. Using Stella Architect, you'll be introduced to classic "stock and flow" structures with examples in geohydrology, population
biology, epidemiology and economics. These applications demonstrate the transferability of the systems approach across disciplines and the value of modeling techniques that allow managers and
researchers to see, in advance, the consequences of enviromental policies.
