Hazardous Materials in the Hydrologic Environment: The Role of Research by the U.S. Geological Survey include ground water flow in fractured media, ground water recharge processes, wellhead protection, and the hydrogeology of glacial deposits. CONSTANCE HUNT received her BS in wildlife biology from Arizona State University, and her MA in public policy from the University of Chicago. She is a senior program officer with the World Wildlife Fund, where she directs the freshwater ecosystem conservation program, including projects to promote restoration of the upper Mississippi River basin, coordination with South Florida restoration efforts, involvement in national water resources policy, and international river conservation efforts. Previously, she conducted inter-agency coordinator projects, wetland evaluations and delineations, permit processing, and environmental impact analysis while on the staff of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. DAWN S. KABACK is a hydrogeochemist who received her Ph.D. in geological sciences from the University of Colorado in 1977. Presently, she is Interim Director of the Colorado Center for Environmental Management in Denver. Until recently, Dr. Kaback managed the ground water research group (Environmental Sciences Section) at the DOE Savannah River Laboratory in Aiken, South Carolina. Her work involves aquifer characterization and development of innovative technologies to improve environmental restoration of contaminated soils and ground water. Previously, she worked for Conoco in the R&D department where she had a variety of assignments related to environmental effects of mining, geochemical exploration, and clastic diagenesis as applied to petroleum exploration.
