Center for Natural Resources Assessment and Decision Support (CeNRADS)

Our expanding population creates an ever-increasing need for natural resources to supply food, fiber, energy, recreation, clean water and air, and other products and amenities. Competition for increasingly scarce resources creates challenges for those who attempt to supply natural resource-based goods and services in an efficient and environmentally responsible manner.

Finding solutions to these challenges requires complex and data-intensive assessment and projection of resource availability, conditions, locations, and trends. Advanced analytical tools and extensive resource data are needed to ensure that decisions are based on sound science, adequate information, and careful consideration of alternatives.
