Field Activity Northeast (EFANE), in conjunction with NAVFAC Atlantic, is
hosting an informational and training workshop on Spatial Analysis and Decision
Assistance software. This workshop will
achieve the following objectives:
- Provide an overview of
how the SADA software can serve as a complementary data analysis tool to
data exported from NIRIS.
- Provide an overview of
what SADA software is, its capabilities to assess data, and how it can
assist with risk management decisions at a site.
- Provide a demonstration
of SADA software capabilities utilizing data from two actual Navy
Installation Restoration (IR) Sites.
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. Additional information on SADA
software and its capabilities can be found at http://www.sadaproject.net/.
Topics that will be discussed during the workshop regarding SADA’s capabilities
are as follows:
SADA Basics -
Human Health Risk Assessment
Ecological Risk Assessment -
- Customizing Analysis -
Conducting Decision Analysis -
Developing Sampling Designs -
Working in Three Dimensions
Who Should Attend?
workshop is intended for Navy Remedial Project Managers, Remedial Technical
Managers, and risk assessors. However,
