<h2> Abstract </h2>
<!-- Pull Readme and parse Abstract with Nokogiri? -->
This project is an exploration into measuring and comparing the value of information in the problem of optimal control/management of a natural resource under multiple sources of uncertainty. Uncertainty about model dynamics, quality of information, and the accuracy of management implementation pose a challenge both in theory and practice of managing natural systems. Different forms of uncertainty may interact, making it impossible to study each in isolation, even in theory and simulation. While managers can often gather additional information to decease uncertainty, not all information is equally valuable. The goal of this project is to help illuminate what kinds of information are most valuable (or kinds of uncertainty are most hazardous) in a way that can be quantified directly in the context of the management optimization problem.
