APPENDIX A BIOGRAPHIES OF COMMITTEE MEMBERS KENNETH S. Kearney, Inc., GAMUT is a senior program manager with A.T. responsible for assessments of hazardous waste problems and practices. A lawyer and biologist, and former director of the Pollution and Toxic Substances Division of the National Wildlife Federation, Mr. Kamlet for a number of years concentrated on the application of scientific and technical knowledge to public policies addressing ocean and land disposal of wastes and other materials. He has published numerous papers on these and related topics and has served on many policy review and planning, including several NRC, committees that have addressed marine environmental issues. Mr. Kamlet has a national reputation for addressing sensitive environmental issues in a fair and open-minded way. Recently, for example, he chaired a successful national meeting on beneficial uses of dredged material. He has twice served on the U.S. delegation to the London Dumping Convention. Mr. Kamlet holds a B.S. degree in biology from the City College of New York, an M. Phil. degree in biology from Yale University , and a J . D. degree from the University of Pennsylvania. He is a member of the District of Columbia bar. FILLIP J. EMS is an associate fellow in Monsanto's corporate Environmental Sciences Center. Dr. Adams has been at Monsanto for the past 10 years and has worked in the areas of aquatic toxicology, environmental fate, sediment assessment and hazard assessment. He is currently conducting research in the area of specialized uses of microbes for waste site cleanup and treatment of industrial wastes. Dr. Adams received a B.S. degree from Lake Superior State College; he obtained an M.S. degree in wildlife toxicology in 1971 from Michigan State University and his Ph.D. from the same institution in aquatic toxicology. A. KARIM ARMED is with the Environ Corporation in Princeton, New Jersey. He recently came to Environ from serving as research director and senior staff scientist at the Natural Resources Defense Council, Inc. in New York. Dr. Karim also serves as adjunct professor at the State University of New York, College at Purchase and as Raymond G. Brown Adjunct Professor at ache Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art. He received his B.Sc. degree in physics and chemistry, and his M.Sc. degree in chemistry from the University of Karachi, Pakista. Dr. Ahmed received his M.S. degree in organic chemistry and his Ph.D. in biochemistry from the University of Minnesota . HENRY J. BOKUNIEUICZ is an associate professor in the Marine Sciences Research Center at the State University of New York at Stony Brook. Dr. Bokuniewicz has authored and co-authored numerous papers on sediment transport and deposition, sediment mass balance, and ache effects of storm and tidal energy . His current research ingot ves effects of resuspension on containment availability for dredged 483

He received his B.A. degree from the University of Illinois and his M. Phil. and Ph.D. degrees from Yale University. TROMAS A. GRIGALUNAS is a professor in, and is the former chairman of, the Department of Resource Economics at the University of Rhode Island. Dr. Grigalunas has done extensive research in the area of OCS oil and gas economics, including studies of bidding behavior, regional impacts, and environmental effects, including multiple use conflicts. He also has done considerable work on a variety of marine pollution issues, including the development of concepts for measuring the risks and economic damages from oil spills and from spills of hazardous substances. Among other activities, he was principal investigator for the international economic study of the AMOCO CADIZ oil spill, and he-served as co-principal investigator for the development of the simplified Natural Resource Damage Assessment Model for Coastal and Marine Environments under CERCLA (Superfund). He also served as co-principal investigator for the analysis of the environmental costs in the most recent Five-year OCS oil and gas leasing program. Dr. Grigalunas received his Ph.D. in economics from the Univers ity of Maryland. JOHN B. HERBICH is professor in the Ocean and Civil Engineering Department and a Graduate Faculty Member at Texas A&M University. Dr. Herbich is an expert in coastal and ocean engineering with a specialty in dredging engineering and technology development and also has consulted extensively for U.S. and international industries and governments on coastal developments and uses. He has served on several committees of the National Research Council, including chairing the Technical Panel of the Committee on National Dredging Issues. A Fellow of the American Society of Civil Engineers, Dr. Herbich received his B. Sc . degree in civil engineering at the University of Edinburgh, his M.S. in hydromechanics at the University of Minnesota, and his Ph.D. in civil Engineering at Pennsylvania State University. ROBERT J. HUGGETT is professor in the Marine Science Department, assistant director and head of the Division of Chemistry and Toxicology, Virginia Institute of Marine Science, School of Marine Science, College of William and Mary. Dr. Huggett's research interests are directed to the fates and effects of toxic chemicals in aqueous systems. He is 8 member of the EPA's Science Advisory Board and is assistant editor of the Journal of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry. Dr. Huggett received a B.S. degree in chemistry from the College of William and Mary, an M.S. degree in marine chemistry from Scripps Institution of Oceanography, and a Ph.D. in marine science from the College of William and Mary.

485 HOWARD L. SANDERS, a benthic ecologist, has been associated with the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution for more than 30 years Dr. Sanders has conducted pioneering research in the biology of marine pollution, the response of benthic communities to environmental insult, and their recovery. He is a member of the American Society of Limnology and Oceanography and a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and a member of the National Academy of Sciences. Dr. Sanders received a B.A. degree from the University of British Columbia, an M.S. degree from the University of Rhode Island and a Ph. D . in zoology from Yale University. . JAMES M . THORNTON is a senior environmentalist for the Washington State Department of Ecology as advisor to the Department Director on policy and technical issues for contaminated sediments. He currently serves as the department's technical expert on development of marine and fresh water sediment evaluation procedures, and also serves as the state's technical and policy liaison with principal planning agencies from other states and appropriate federal agencies concerning dredging and dredge disposal. This includes coordination with the states of Oregon and Idaho for maintenance of the Columbia River Channel and with the Corps of Engineers and EPA in evaluating and designating ocean disposal sites.
