Green Infrastructure Modeling
Innovative methods are needed to treat urban stormwater in the 21st Century. Green infrastructure, which mimics natural processes, can mitigate adverse hydrology and chemistry in streams. We use GIS tools to model the benefits of green infrastructure.
Our work is demonstrating that techniques such as rainwater harvesting can reduce flooding in some urban drainage networks.
Perdido Pensacola Wetlands
Estuarine wetlands of the Perdido and Pensacola Bay Systems are extensive and vast ecosystems that play a critical role in sustaining the health and wellbeing of communities in the region. We have partnered with the Pensacola and Perdido Bays Estuary Program to implement an assessment of the estuarine wetlands in the region.
Collaborative Estuary Management
Collaborative nonregulatory programs represent an important tool for improving the health of ecosystems worldwide. We are partnering with the University of West Florida and Estuary Programs along Florida's northern Gulf Coast to identify projects to improve the health of esutaries and the communities that depend on them for wellbeing.
