HAF Fellow for the Civilian Climate Corp (CCC) – Remote Sensing

National Wildlife Refuge System - Albuquerque, NM 

There are an estimated 450 orphan oil and gas wells (well without a solvent owner) on National Wildlife Refuges (NWR) nationwide. The true number of orphaned wells is likely higher than estimated. More than 100 refuges may be affected and over half of orphan wells are found on five refuges: Upper Ouachita NWR, Tensas NWR, Delta NWR, and D'Arbonne NWR in Louisiana, and Deep Fork NWR in Oklahoma.
 
In 2021, the NWRS piloted a study using high-resolution LiDAR data to create a 3D map of surface features on refuges, including potential well pads and reserve pits which are typically associated with oil and gas development. Field staff used maps created from these LiDAR data that indicated potential oil and gas well sites. When tested on Deep Fork NWR, the technique correctly predicted over 67% of sites with orphaned oil and gas wells that were not previously identified in training data used for the well detection machine learning model. The NWRS is expanding this study to additional refuges and habitat types to further validate and refine the analysis. We are recruiting for two Fellows to perform these analyses.
See position posting for details.

GIS Analyst and Cartographer, Andes-Amazon

The Field Museum seeks a GIS Analyst and Cartographer with South American expertise and a passion for the Andes-Amazon region to produce maps, analyses, and databases that illuminate the diversity of ecosystems, their condition and uses, and the potential for future management. The GIS Analyst will collaborate with a team of biologists and social scientists working in close collaboration with conservation organizations, Indigenous and campesino peoples, universities and museums, and national and regional governments.


The GIS Analyst will be part of the Andes-Amazon program in the Keller Science Action Center, an interdisciplinary team committed to translating Museum science into action for conservation and improved quality of life. One of the main initiatives of the team is to conduct rapid inventories, which are surveys of remote wilderness areas that provide social and biological information to decision-makers to help establish effective conservation areas. Since launching the program in 1999, the team has completed rapid inventories in 31 different locations—24 of them in the Andes-Amazon region of South America—and provided the Peruvian, Colombian, Bolivian, and Ecuadorian governments with technical support for the creation of 17 new conservation areas.

The GIS Analyst will be based at the Field Museum in Chicago and report to a Senior Conservation Ecologist. The position involves travel to South America, anywhere from 15-30% of the year, with the possibility for field work in remote locations. During the pandemic, the GIS Analyst will work virtually with the team rather than onsite.

This is a one year term position.
