Abstracts

Developing an interactive, web-based tool for anticipating long-term drought risk

We developed an interactive web application that allows land managers to simulate and explore historical and future soil moisture and climate for their specific sites. Here we will talk about the process of developing and deploying the application, as well as how to utilize the app and its outcomes.

Caitlin Andrews is a landscape ecologist who works for the Terrestrial Dryland Ecology branch of the Southwest Biological Science Center. Her work focuses on using models and tools to study the effect of climate and drought on western ecosystems.


Knowledge Extraction Algorithms: Turning Literature Into Data

Identifying, extracting, and mobilizing information from current and historical literature is a time-consuming part of organizing and collating synthetic data productions. This project explores the use of algorithm-based methods to identify and extract occurrence information from the GeoDeepDive (GDD) literature database to support upkeep of the Nonindigenous Aquatic Species (NAS) data.

Matthew Neilson, Fishery Biologist and co-lead for the Nonindigenous Aquatic Species Database program, a national repository for biogeographic information on non-native aquatic taxa (both alien and native transplants) nationwide. 


Mapping land-use, hazard vulnerability and habitat suitability using deep neural networks

During 2018, we developed multi-day workshops to provide training in the background and implementation of machine learning and deep neural networks. Here we will provide a summary of the workshops, including the tools provided, lessons learned, and success stories.

Jonathan Warrick, Research Geologist, USGS Coastal/Marine Hazards and Resources Program and PI of the USGS Remote Sensing Coastal Change Project.  A former USGS Mendenhall from 2002 to 2004, Jon studies coastal watersheds and coastal change using a broad set of tools and analyses.
