GIS–based analysis of the Cariaco Basin to explain spatial@local10 posterseawater decrease during the Penultimate Deglaciation

Carson Adam cadam@inbox.com Earth Science Department Department of Geography University of California, Santa Barbara

The Cariaco Basin, northern coast of Venezuela, reaches depths of approximately 1,400 meters and is anoxic below depths of 250m. The poster examines a hypothesis that increased surface run-off into the basin during deglaciation may have decreased the salinity of surface waters enough to stratify the water column.

Greening Port Trucking by Analysis of GPS Tracks Linna Li and Val Noronha Department of Geography University of California, Santa Barbara

An analysis of the location and speed of every MeTris truck, every second of the day, is useful to streamline port operations, improve highway incident management and security, and can impact billions worth of metropolitan infrastructure.

Discovering Behavioral Patterns in Collective Authorship of Geotagged Wikipedia Darren Hardy Department of Geography University of California, Santa Barbara

Hardy searches for common patterns of authorship behavior in nearly 1 million geotagged articles across 21 languages from Wikipedia. While current GIS research has focused on technological issues of visualization and data organization, new forms of collective authorship such as collaborative mapping, or “neogeography,” suggests needs for new information frameworks and behaviors.

Sea Level Rise & the American Riviera Lauren Campbell, Matt McSpadden, and Corey Vermillion Department of Geography University of California, Santa Barbara

This analysis considers three different scenarios for the possible impacts of melting polar icecaps and rising sea levels to the Santa Barbara coastline. Shapefiles for each projected level of sea rise were created in ArcGIS 9.3 using three-meter DEMs of Santa Barbara and Goleta. These were then overlain on specially created human and environmental shapefiles to produce meaningful maps that can be used to make projections.
