To satisfy my culminating master's degree requirement, I constructed a portfolio that focused on the relationship between content, tools, and analysis in my graduate work. Content is derived from scientific reading and coursework. Tools are programs or methods used to perform a specific function, for example Python or ArcGIS . Analysis is the result of using content and tools to draw conclusions. Much of my work focused on evaluating the accuracy of post-fire debris flow models in the Pioneer burn area. I drew upon content-based scientific reading and used ArcMap to perform an analysis and test my hypothesis.
