- Published 1998

The Pareto Optimal Model Assessment Cycle (POMAC), a multiple-criteria model assessment methodology, is described for exploring uncertainty in the relationships between ecological theory, model structure, and assessment data. Model performance is optimized to satisfy, simultaneously, each component of a vector of assessment criteria (model outputs), rather than the usual procedure of optimizing performance with respect to a single criterion. Pareto Optimality is used to define the vector… CONTINUE READING
