James N. Galloway, Ph.D., is a professor in the Department of Environmental Sciences at the University of Virginia and is currently a visiting scientist at the Marine Biological Laboratory and the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. His major interests include the biogeochemistry of emissions, transport, and fate of nitrogen and sulfur and their potential effects on ecology. He received his B.A. (1966) from Whittier College and Ph.D. (1972) in chemistry from the University of California, San Diego. Galloway has given expert testimony to state and federal agencies and legislatures on environmental issues. He has previously served on the National Research Council Global Climate Change Study Panel (Chair), Panel on Processes of Lake Acidification, Tri-Academy Committee on Acid Deposition, and Committee on Transport and Transformation Chemistry in Acid Deposition.

Margaret Rosso Grossman, Ph.D., J.D., is a professor of agricultural law in the Department of Agricultural and Consumer Economics at the University of Illinois. She has spent sabbatical leaves (1986-1987, 1993-1994, 2000-2001) and many summers in the Law and Governance Group (formerly Department of Agrarian Law) at Wageningen University, Netherlands. Her research interests include domestic and international agricultural and environmental law. She received her B. Mus. (1969) from the University of Illinois, A.M. (1970) from Stanford University, Ph.D. (1977) from the University of Illinois, and J.D. (1979) from the University of Illinois. Grossman is past president (1991) of the American Agricultural Law Association (AALA) and received the AALA Distinguished Service Award (1993). She was awarded the Silver Medal of the European Council for Agricultural Law (1999), and she has received three Fulbright grants to support her research in Europe. Grossman is a member of the bar in Illinois and the District of Columbia (inactive).

Prasad Kasibhatla, Ph.D., is an associate professor in the Division of Environmental Science and Policy at Duke University. His areas of expertise include tropospheric chemistry and transport, global tropospheric oxidants, global tropospheric aerosols, regional air quality, anthropogenic impacts on atmospheric composition and ecosystems, and global and regional tropospheric chemistry modeling. He received his B.S. (1982) from the University of Bombay, M.S. (1984) from the University of Kentucky, and Ph.D. (1988) in chemical engineering from the University of Kentucky. Dr. Kasibhatla has previously served on the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Committee for Measurement of Air Pollution from Satellites and proposal review panels for National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and Department of Energy (DOE) atmospheric chemistry programs.
