Spatial Approaches for Ecological Screening and Exposure Assessment of Chemicals and Radionclides

Citation:

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.

Impact/Purpose:

To present research.

Description:

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.
