What SADA can('t) do for you

May 2, 2013 9:45 am to 1:00 pm at the SPHPI, 1603 W. Taylor Street, Room 109

This seminar is sponsored by the division of Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences (EOHS) and organized by the SPH-EOHS Emergency Management and Continuity Planning (EMCP) program in collaboration with the University of Tennessee, Institute for Environmental Modeling, Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, and the SPH-EOHS Illinois Occupational and Environmental Health and Safety Education and Research Center.

Speaker: Dr. Robert Stewart, UT-SADA group

Spatial Analysis and Decision Assistance (SADA) is free software that incorporates tools from environmental assessment fields into an effective problem solving environment. These tools include integrated modules for visualization, geospatial analysis, statistical analysis, human health risk assessment, ecological risk assessment, cost/benefit analysis, sampling design, and decision analysis. The capabilities of SADA can be used independently or collectively to address site specific concerns when characterizing a contaminated site, assessing risk, determining the location of future samples, and when designing remedial action.
