Complex, dynamic, and ill-structured problems tend to defy strictly technical solutions and also exceed the human capacity to solve them unaided. ENCOMPASS is a cyberinfrastructure initiative to make energy and earth science accessible. The platform merges scientific models, algorithms, and informatics with educational modules, citizen science, real-time data, and systems models in an online hub to communicate global drivers on local natural resources to local stakeholders, and vice versa.
