Recent Projects

Floodplain Ecosystem Service Mapper: web-based data visualization tool that displays LIDAR-based floodplains and stream channel metrics in the Delaware River and Chesapeake Bay Basins. Future updates will incorporate watershed-level evaluations of floodplain ecosystem services.

North Carolina Water-Quality Model Mapper: web-based data visualization tool that displays estimated water-quality in North Carolina watersheds, based on SPARROW models of total suspended solids, total nitrogen, and total phosphorus.

Waterbody Rapid Assessment Tool (WaterRAT): Python application designed for three-dimensional visualizations of data collected by autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs).

National Streamflow Satistics (NSS): in-progress web application that provides a simple method for applying regional flood-peak streamflow estimates and low flow frequency/duration streamflow estimates.
