|Summary||The goal of this work is to identify the areas and conditions under which there is a high risk for tunneling on the border between Mexico and the United States. This is part of a larger effort headed by TRAC-Monterey to make recommendations to the Customs and Border Protection Agency (CBP) about how and what type of sensors to deploy along the U.S. Boders to identify tunneling. Our portion of the work involves preliminary exploration of available data on tunnels (e.g. types of tunnels, uses, locations, etc.) and any other social (e.g. levels of criminal activity), geographic (e.g. water tables), or U.S. Border patrol activities (e.g. fencing, patrolling, etc.) that might inhibit or encourage tunneling. Ultimately, we would like to be able to statistically model the risk of tunneling as a function of these various factors.|
