Senior Technical Advisors

Because of the complexities of the Newark Bay system, EPA needs to use the latest scientific techniques to define the nature and extent of contamination and determine the human health and ecological risks posed. To ensure that EPA is using sound science in the study, a group of Senior Technical Advisors is consulted, as needed. The Senior Technical Advisors are nationally-recognized experts in the scientific areas identified as important for this project's success. These areas include sediment transport, sediment geochemistry, bioaccumulation and food chain modeling, contaminant fate and transport, field sampling techniques, and engineering aspects of sediment remediation.
