Highlighted Projects

Mystic River Recreational Flagging and Daily Boating Advisory Project

Developed statistical models and a dynamic web application for generating daily boating advisories based on whether predicted bacteria levels are expected to exceed state water quality standards.

Groundwater and Water Distribution System Modeling for the Wilmington Cancer Study

Developed groundwater and water distribution system models to simulate the transport of NDMA and TCE from deep aquifer contamination sources to water supply wells and then across the water distribution system of the town of Wilmington. Results were used as part of the MA DPH Wilmington Cancer Study.

Mystic River Herring Video Count Project

Developed a web-based system for acquiring, storing, and viewing underwater videos of river herring passage on the Mystic River. The website allows members of the general public to actively participate in annual fish counts of the river herring migration.

SHEDS: Interactive Catchment Explorer

A web-based interactive GIS application for exploring environmental model output and geospatial datasets at multiple spatial scales.

Spatial Hydro-Ecological Decision System (SHEDS)

Web-based geospatial database and modeling system for stream temperature and fish habitat to support better resource management.
