Most of the computer graphics and the basic look of the slides were created by Gordon Loveland, under the direction of Joel Renner at the Idaho National Engineering and Environmental Lab. Several graphics were created or edited by Gary Varnell at Digital Graphic Studios (who was introduced to the project by Gordon Bloomquist of the Washington State University Energy Office) and the computer graphics staff at the University of Hawaii (through Don Thomas).

Thurston Productions redesigned and produced the final slide set and converted it to Powerpoint.
