224 Appendix A of utility regulation and economics. He is now the principal of his own consulting firm, The Goodman Group, where his work includes assessing electric and gas resource planning, demand forecasts, supply options, and environmental effects. Mr. Goodman also evaluates conservation potential and cost effectiveness, program design, and utility demand-side management initiatives. William Graf obtained his Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin, Madison, with a major in physical geography and a minor in water resources management. He specializes in fluvial geomorphology, hydrology, con- servation policy and public land management, and aerial photographic interpretation. He has served as consulting geomorphologist for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in a research and advisory role concerning the en- vironmental impact assessment of flood control works at the Salt and Gila rivers in Arizona; and for Camp, Dresser, and McKee, Inc., for geomorphology and geology, and the state of Arizona for fluvial geomorphology. His research activities have emphasized fluvial geomorphology and the effects of human activities on streams; public land management, especially wilderness preservation, and rapids in canyon rivers; dynamics and recreation man- agement; and the problems of heavy metal and radionuclide transport in river systems. Dr. Graf has published some 50 articles and book chapters on the impact of suburbanization on fluvial geomorphology; resources, the environment, and the American experience; and the effect of dam closure on downstream rapids. His books include The Geomorphic Systems of North America, The Colorado River: Basin Stability and Management, Fluvial Processes and Dryland Rivers, Wilderness Preservation and the Sagebrush Rebellions, and Plutonium and the Rio Grande.
