NEARC Fall 2015 has ended

Welcome to the technical sessions schedule for the 2015 Annual Fall NEARC Conference. 

 The technical schedule is capable of being sorted by date (i.e, Monday, Nov. 9) or track (i.e. USGS Hydro). You can also search for a presentation title (i.e. Harmonizing the NHD and WBD Datasets in Maine), key term (i.e. NHD), or presenter last name (i.e. O’Neil-Dunne). The sort and search functions can be found on the navigation panel on the right side of this page. If you hover over the "Schedule" button, you’ll also see different schedule view options (i.e. Grid or Simple). Try selecting each of them to see which view you prefer.

Katie Budreski, Stone Environmental

Stone Environmental will demonstrate two web applications developed in response to President Obama's Climate Data Initiative thru Esri's Climate Resilience App Challenge and the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNISDR) Making Cities Resilient Campaign thru Esri Global Disaster Resilience App Challenge 2014 The Modeling Community Erosion from Climate Change App enables community members and leaders to understand the impact climate change will have on soil erosion. It provides a basis for taking preventative action regarding infrastructure investments and soil conservation using high-resolution scientific data. The Modeling Resilience to Stormwater During Extreme Events App supports the preparation of risk assessments as a basis for urban development plans and decisions by highlighting critical areas of accumulation of runoff during extreme weather that may be in excess of the runoff volume for which infrastructure was designed. Predictions of excess stormwater over land and historic flood zones are overlaid with infrastructure such as bridges, culverts, catchbasins, storm drains and storm lines to help identify system risks. Risk information in the app can help prioritize investment and maintenance of critical stormwater infrastructure.
