SPCMSC Research Oceanographer Meg Palmsten was awarded the project-of-the-year for Munitions Response from the Strategic Environmental Research and Development Program (SERDP) at the 2020 SERDP Symposium, held virtually on November 30, 2020.
Meg’s project is titled, “Probabilistic Environmental Modeling System for Munitions Mobility.” The award is shared with Dr. Allison Penko at the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory, the co-PI on the project.
The objective of Meg’s project is to simulate the waves, currents, and sediment transport at underwater sites with unexploded or discarded military munitions. The estimates of the near-bottom environmental conditions are coupled with a probabilistic model for munitions exposure, burial, and migration. Cartographic visualizations of the probability of munitions mobility resulting from the coupled simulations provide remediation site managers with integrated and cost-effective tools for risk assessment and decision-making regarding remediation of these sites.
