Author: Arpit Bhatt
Project Title: Data-analysis System for the Hydrocarbon Leval at Oil Platforms
Semester: Fall 1999
Committe Chair: Dr. Mario Guimaraes
Committee Member 1: Dr. Mario Garcia
Committee Member 2: Dr. R. Stephen Dannelly
Project Description: This project is the design and implementation of a graphicsal data-analysys system to monitor hydrocarbon levels near oil platforms in the Gulf of Mexico. This platform-independent system provides database retrieval and data observation capabilities through a clear graphical presentation of data to show pollution levels with respect to time and depth, and is available to users through the World Wide Web. The system is designed to be user-friendly so it is available for use in education and research work in environmental monitoring, and to carry out Principal Component Analysis (PCA) to find different components of the contamination.
