Scott Brame's primary teaching and research interests are in modeling environmental and geological problems using spatial analysis techniques. His research efforts have been directed toward automating geographic information system software to create real-time spatial analysis applications. Project topics have included designing reverse osmosis systems for Constructed Wetlands, determining geologically suitable areas for construction of natural gas caverns using GIS, modeling steam extraction of heavy oil from the subsurface, and most recently creating a nationwide aquifer model.
