WO OD ~ Chairman) is associate professor of oceanic science and engineering and director of the Hydromechanic I,aboratory, School of Civil Engineering, Purdue University, West Lafayette, Indiana. He also serves as director of the Great Lakes Coastal Research Laboratory at Purdue. from 1984 to 1985 Dr. Wood served as chief of the Engineering Development Division, Coastal Engineering Research Center, Waterways Experiment Sta- tion, where in 1985 he received the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers's Special Commendation for outstanding service. Dr. Wood received a Ph.D. in geophysics (marine science) from Michigan State University, did graduate work in geophysical fluid dynamics at the University of Chicago, and received a B.S. in applied mathematics and physics from Michigan State University. Dr. Wood's research has focused on coastal hydrodynamics, boundary layer processes, and shallow ocean dynamics. Specific interests have been shallow-water wave transformation, wave instabilities and breaking, vertical and hori- zontal structure of longshore currents, generation of short-crested waves and their transformation at a coast, sediment entrainment in turbulent boundary layers, stability of coastal profiles in response to storm waves and lake-level variation, and dynamics of submarine canyons. He has just completed an appointment as vice-chairman of the National Research Council's Committee on Coastal Engineering 168

[EATHE:RMAN is director of the Laboratory for Coastal Research and professor of geomorphology in the Depart- ment of Geography at the University of Maryland, College Park. He received his B.S. in geoscience from North Carolina State Univer- sity and a Ph.D. in environmental sciences from the University of Virginia. His principal research interests are in quantitative coastal geomorphology, coastal geology and hydraulics, and coastal resources management. He has authored/edited 8 books and published over 100 journal articles and reports on storm-generated beach processes, barrier island dynamics, and sea level rise impacts on coastal ar- eas. Dr. Leatherman was an author of the 1987 National Research Council report on "Responding to Changing Sea Level: Engineering Implications." BERNARD [E: MEHAUTE received his engineering degree from the University of Toulouse, France, followed by an advanced degree from the University of Paris (cum laude) and his doctoral degree with the highest distinction from the University of Grenoble. Currently, he is professor of applied marine physics, Rosenstie! School of Marine and Atmospheric Science at the University of Miami. Previously, he was senior vice-president and corporate chief engineer, cofounder, and director of Tetra Tech. He was appointed by the Secretary of Commerce to the National Sea Grant Advisory Pane] for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration under the Ford and Carter administrations. He was nominated by the Secretary of the Army to the Coastal Engineering Research Board from 1982 to 1988, and he was the first recipient of the International Coastal Engineering Award of the American Society of Civil Engineers in 1979.

172 Consultant APPENDIX G GERALDINE BACHMAN is familiar with both the coastal management program administered by the National Oceanic and At- mospheric Administration and the Federal Emergency Management Agency program as well as the development process and objectives of builders and owners who develop in coastal areas. She was employed by the federal office of Coastal Zone Management from 1975 to 1977, and from 1982 to 1984 she worked for a private architecture and engineering firm under contract with the Federal Emergency Man- agement Agency to do floodplain and coastal hazard studies. Most recently, she spent 3 years at the Urban Land Institute and was re- sponsible for initiating the policy education program that attempted to bring together conservation and development interests on issues such as ground water, wetlands management, impact fees, hazardous waste, and other such environmental/development concerns. Cur- rently, she is a principal in a small planning/development consulting firm, Marsolan Associates, in Annapolis, Maryland.
