An integrated ecosystem model for the entire South Atlantic region

Wouldn't it be great if we could predict how our actions would impact all the ecosystems of the South Atlantic? How does forest management impact water quantity, quality, and aquatic species? How do oyster reefs affect marine fish? How about economic incentives and different types of land protection---how do actions on a specific parcel impact freshwater and [...]
