GISLab supported the LANL Cerro Grande Rehabilitation
Project (CGRP), providing a repository for fire-related spatial
data, imagery, maps, and modeling results, as well as storage,
retrieval, comparison and display of fire-related information.
Other CGRP work included:
floodplain mapping and hydrological modeling
maps for post-wildfire forest management
- GIS support for the Infrastructure
Assurance Analysis Program
- Regional Assessment of Water
Resources - Coupled model of Rio Grande River basin
- Urban Security - Volcanic
hazards assessment for Mexico City
- Transportation - Traffic
modeling using advanced computational
and analytical techniques
GIS analysis of aeromagnetic data taken near the
proposed Yucca Mountain nuclear waste repository (orange shape)
in Nevada supports geologic interpretations of some anomalies as
potential buried basalt. GIS is also used for planning investigative
drilling at those locations.
The ASHPLUME computer code models the atmospheric
dispersal and deposition of volcanic ash, including any entrained
nuclear waste, from a potential violent Strombolean-type eruption
through the Yucca Mtn. repository. Using a GIS, the results are
combined with a watershed/sediment transport model to predict the
potential redistribution of contaminated ash by surface water flow.
