ALI’s urban research projects focus on maximizing the recovery, use, and reuse of rain and stormwater, at both local and regional scales. Environmental geospatial modeling coupled with fine-grained remote sensing analyses aid in identifying likely sources and quantities of stormwater and may suggest the shifts necessary within land use, zoning patterns, and building types to maximize these potential resources.  

ALI’s rural research focuses on developing an environmental modeling and geodesign prototype to simulate, at a watershed scale, stormwater behavior.   The goal is to identify and implement appropriate recapture and control techniques for slowing erosion and deposition processes within ephemeral stream systems in the arid West.
