Avalanche Debris Flow Monitoring and Structural Imaging

Submitted by tadamson on

Above average snowpack across Colorado in 2018–19 led to an unprecedented avalanche season, with the concomitant deposition of debris in streams creating flooding hazards across the state. This was especially true for Lake City in Hinsdale County, sitting at the confluence of Henson Creek and the Lake Fork of the Gunnison River, which together had more than 30 avalanches upstream of town.

Emergency Stabilization and Rehabilitation (ESR) Post-fire Imagery Support

Submitted by atripp on

Since 2014, the National Operations Center (NOC) has provided remotely sensed geospatial data products to support management officials conducting Emergency Stabilization and Rehabilitation (ESR) activities on wildfire-affected BLM lands. The ESR program is implemented to lessen post-fire effects such as erosion and to restore affected habitats.

LandCART: Landscape Cover Analysis and Reporting Tools

Submitted by atripp on

Landscape Cover Analysis and Reporting Tools (LandCART) is an online mapping application being developed by the BLM Geospatial Imaging group at the National Operations Center (NOC) through a National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Science (ROSES) grant in partnership with U.S. Geological Survey and University of California-Los Angeles (UCLA) geospatial researchers.
