A paper featuring the groundbreaking research being conducted by Harrisburg University faculty and students, and in collaboration with the Susquehanna River Basin Commission (SRBC), has been accepted to the 19th International Conference on Information & Knowledge Engineering for publication in the forthcoming Springer book: Transactions on Computational Science and Computational Intelligence.

The book will be issued to more than 1,000 libraries, making it available to tens of thousands of individuals. Previous published books by Springer rank among the top 25 percent downloaded works in their respective fields with many papers receiving more than 100 citations (some received more than 700 citations).

Panel of Experts

Data-driven Environmental Management: A Digital Prototype Dashboard to Analyze and Monitor the Precipitation on Susquehanna River Basin was written by Asst. Professors of Analytics Siamak Aram and Roozbeh Sadeghian, Asst. Prof. of Earth Systems Science Michael Meyer, SRBC Monitoring & Protection Program Manager James Shallenberger, graduate students Maria H. Rivero and Nikesh Pahuja, and undergraduate student Joshua L. R. Paulino.

The paper describes a digital dashboard system being developed for SRBC by HU that uses Machine learning and data visualization techniques to give SRBC managers a unified view of water quality conditions in the basin and facilitate better decision making. This project has been funded for the past two years by HU Presidential Research Grants.

The ongoing HU-SRBC research collaboration was organized by HU’s Center for Environment, Energy, and Economy. Several other HU-SRBC collaborative research projects are also underway.
