Modeling can be helpful for identifying pollutant sources and understanding the potential impacts and risks they pose. Our team is experienced with geographic information systems and uses various modeling tools for projects in terrestrial and marine environments. Modeling can be incorporated into a project scope or provided as a stand-alone service. Click on the links below for more information and contact us to talk about these services.
Exposure to pollutants at elevated concentrations can lead to health risks to people and biota. To assess these risks, it is important to understand a pollutant’s source, life-span, and mobility, and the exposure pathways to potential pollutant receptors. These elements can be modeled to evaluate pollutant dispersal from its source to receptors. This information is valuable for developing risk assessments and strategies for pollutant mitigation and remediation.
Blue Tomorrow uses models to quantify the volume, timing, and location of water and pollutants discharged through a drainage network. The fate and transport of a pollutant through a watershed can be modeled based on the properties of the pollutant and physical processes within the watershed. These models can help with the management of water resources and targeting of pollutant mitigation strategies.
Geographic information systems (GIS) integrate data which can be used to manage, analyze, and display spatial features and attributes. Blue Tomorrow’s experience with GIS allows for the analysis of project areas and generation of spatial models. Blue Tomorrow provides high quality maps that visually represent various analyses performed for our projects.
