StudyTank brings together collaborative, multi-disciplinary researchers –“research clusters”—to engage with critical issues. The nature of these issues can be speculative or analytic, environmental, socio-political ,or scientific. Methodologically, StudyTank studies diverse interfaces between human culture and ecological systems, with a particular focus on land and water networks. This work contributes to integrative practices and bodies of knowledge that advance human understanding and use of complex systems. It also invites productive cross-pollination of the Wright-Ingraham Institute’s programs and mission.
