Risk e Learning Web Seminars
Superfund Research Program
Superfund Research Program Colleagues,
Congratulations! With your high quality content, consistency, and networking, you've made significant inroads into EPA's Superfund/ Hazardous Waste Community...Small wonder with your on-target webinar series over the past couple of years, from those on nanotechnology to ecological risk tools to bioavailability to the imminent series on sediment reduction.

The SRP conducts interactive web-based "Risk e Learning" seminars in collaboration with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Office of Solid Waste and Emergency Response (OSWER). These live, two-hour events are hosted on the Hazardous Waste Clean-Up Information (CLU-IN) website and provide information about innovative treatment and site characterization technologies to the hazardous waste remediation community: EPA risk assessors and regional project managers, state and local regulatory agencies, environmental engineering/consulting firms, and academia.
This upcoming series “Using GIS Tools to Analyze, Compute, and Predict Pollution” features grantees that are using Geographic Information System (GIS) technologies as cost-effective tools to better understand complex exposures to environmental hazards. These computer hardware and software tools are primarily used to integrate and manage multifaceted and varying sets of data within a geographic framework for mapping and modeling. The display of environmental health data using GIS tools is also helpful in explaining disease or disability patterns in terms of relationships with social, built, and natural environments. A variety of GIS analytical tools are available to help scientists, engineers, planners, and policy makers make better determinations and decisions about the environment.
In case you missed them, the SRP archives past seminars. Below is a list of the past seminar series. Please follow the links to access the seminar archives.
