SMRC Scientists to present at Maryland Water Monitoring Council



S M Resources Corporation (SMRC) to Present Innovative Web Based Tools for Assessing Vulnerabilities at Maryland Water Monitoring Council’s 16th Annual Conference on November 18, 2010.

Lanham, Maryland November 9, 2010 – S M Resources Corporation (SMRC) scientists will present an on-line vulnerability ranking tool they developed as part of a Vulnerability Assessment Support System (VASS) at the Maryland Water Monitoring Council Annual Conference on November 18, 2010. The event will take place at the Maritime Institute in North Linthicum, Maryland.

The tool enables groups of stakeholders to prioritize vulnerabilities by accessing the web based collaborative environment of the VASS. VASS intends to tackle the growing concern in the costs of natural disaster, and to minimize the need for expert participation during the preliminary vulnerability studies.

VASS is being developed under a NOAA grant by SMRC in collaboration with Penn State University – Geography Department and USGS scientists. Presently the program is in a phase of preliminary testing with the support of experts from The Maryland Department of Natural Resources, Talbot County Department of Public Works and Sarasota County Officials.

The Maryland Water Monitoring Council was created in 1995 to foster cooperation among groups involved in all types of water monitoring activities in Maryland. The MWMC is interested in physical, chemical and biological monitoring, as well as the evaluation of land use factors that affect changes in aquatic habitat quality and quantity, and the management actions intended to alleviate or minimize adverse effects on water resources.
