Purpose of this study is to develop an expert model system in which observations, model results and expert knowledge are integrated. This expert system is able to handle knowledge from different domains on different time- and spatial scales in a formalised way. The model can aggregate information to ecosystem level and is able to present a quantitative evaluation of the integrated effects of climate change on geomorphological and ecological processes.
