Nonpoint Source Pollution and Erosion Comparison Tool (N-SPECT)
Entry ID: NOAA_N-SPECT

[ Get Service ]
[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: Nonpoint Source Pollution and Erosion Comparison Tool (N-SPECT) is a complex yet user-friendly geographic information system (GIS) extension that helps coastal managers and local decision makers predict potential water-quality impacts from nonpoint source pollution and erosion. Users first enter information about their area (land cover, elevation, precipitation, and soil characteristics) to create the baseline information. They can then add different land cover change scenarios (such as a development) to get information about potential changes in surface water runoff, nonpoint source pollution, and erosion.
