Part 1: Use of gSSURGO for Wetland Applications – John Galbraith, Virginia Tech
Project Description: A NOAA science collaborative grant has funded a project to examine wetland planning in a watershed context in Douglas County, Wisconsin. Concerns over recent large flooding events and a general concentration of wetland mitigation projects in the county have provided some of the impetus for the project. The project combines landscape-scale wetland functional assessment data and the identification of potential wetland restorations with local engagement and environmental planning.
Kevin Stark is a G.I.S. and Natural Resource Analyst for GeoSpatial Services (GSS) at Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota (SMUMN), specializing in analyzing and communicating landscape scale spatial information. Kevin earned a B.S. of Forestry from the University of Wisconsin – Stevens Point and an M.S. in Geographic Information Science from Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota. Over the past eight years at GSS Kevin has worked on a variety of projects from oil industry data conversion and imagery processing to wetland mapping, wetland field verification, and natural resource condition assessments for the National Park Service, where he focused on topics such as land cover, native plant communities and natural disturbance regimes. Most recently Kevin has been engaged in wetland functional assessments. In his spare time Kevin loves scuba-diving, canoeing, gardening and especially fishing, in fact, a recent wetland field verification trip brought him to Alaska where he took a vacation day to get acquainted with lingcod.
