Southern California’s Shrinking Salton Sea

Free Webcast:

Start Date:11/4/2015

Start Time:2:00 PM EST
Duration:60 minutes


The Imperial Irrigation District (IID) Water Conservation and Transfer Project includes a long-term transfer of up to 303,000 acre-feet of water annually from IID to the San Diego County Water Authority, and the Coachella Valley Water District. The Water Transfer Project, along with other factors affecting Salton Sea inflows and water balance, will result in accelerated exposure of the Salton Sea floor. As the Sea continues to recede, there is potential for windblown dust emissions from the exposed dry lakebed (the playa). A significant portion of this windblown dust is PM10 (particulate matter with an aerodynamic diameter of 10 micrometers or less). PM10 are approximately 1/7th the thickness of a human hair, are small enough to be inhaled, and represent a potential human health risk.

The Salton Sea Air Quality Program is focused on monitoring and mitigating dust emissions from exposed Salton Sea playa. Remote sensing is a key component of this program, and will be used to map playa surfaces, vegetative cover, and active dust source areas. Learn how satellite, aerial and UAV images all contribute to this effort and how they are being processed using Trimble eCognition image analysis software. The presentation will also discuss dust control pilot projects, such as Surface Roughening, and the remote sensing techniques used to inform design and evaluate dust control effectiveness.

Title: HAZUS – MH: Program Methodology, Real World Applications and How to Get Involved

Abstract: Hazus-MH is a GIS based modeling tool. It was developed by FEMA to provide a tool, useable by people with modest to comprehensive scientific knowledge and technical skills, to create a credible risk assessment for their community. The maps, tables and reports that it generates can help a community to better comprehend its risk. It comes complete with population data, information about the built environment, and a variety of other data for the entire USA in a format that can drive the model. It generates estimates and reports commensurate with the precision of the data that is fed into it. When used properly, Hazus-MH is an effective tool for quantifying the economic and social impacts of certain natural disasters (riverine and coastal floods, earthquakes, and hurricane) on a community. It serves as a catalyst for the planning effort by providing a risk assessment that can be an additional reason for convening the “right” people on the planning team, focusing them on the “right” issues and prompting the “right” questions. This presentation will cover the HAZUS-MH methodology and an explanation of how data inputs to play a large role in the value of the final risk assessment. Additionally, this presentation will cover applications of HAZUS-MH in the Emergency Management cycle. Finally, information will be provided to explain how the participants can get involved with the HAZUS community.
