Spatial Approaches for Ecological Screening and Exposure Assessment of Chemicals and Radionclides
PURUCKER, S. T. Spatial Approaches for Ecological Screening and Exposure Assessment of Chemicals and Radionclides. Presented at European Union PROTECT Working Group, Oslo, NORWAY, January 29, 2008.
To present research.
This presentation details a tool, SADA, available for use in environmental assessments of chemicals that can also be used for radiological assessments of the environment. Spatial Analysis and Decision Assistance (SADA) is a Windows freeware program that incorporates tools from environmental assessment for effective problem-solving. SADA includes integrated modules for GIS, visualization, geospatial analysis, statistical analysis, human health and ecological risk assessment, cost/benefit analysis, sampling design, and decision support. SADA is engineered with an open and highly scaleable environment that allows additional functionality without increase in complexity. The result is a mature infrastructure with considerable capabilities in data management, visualization, statistics, GIS functionality, input/output, and self-documentation for assessment of contaminated sites.
