Leschine is the Director of the University of Washington School of Marine Affairs and specializes in environmental policy, with an emphasis on the use of scientific and technical information in environmental decision making. Among his research interests are coastal ecosystem and marine pollution management, maritime safety including oil spill prevention and response, and the long-term management of hazards associated with radioactive and other long- lived wastes. He chaired the NRC Committee on Remediation of Buried and Tank Wastes, whose work culminated with publication of Long-Term Institutional Management of U.S. Department of Energy Legacy Waste Sites (2000), a comprehensive examination of the Department of Energyâs planning for long-term stewardship at defense nuclear sites. That work led to publication of the edited volume Long-Term Management of Contaminated Sites (2007) in the Elsevier JAI academic series Research in Social Problems and Public Policy. Dr. Leschine served previously as a member of the Marine Boardâs Committee on Risk Assessment and Management of Marine Systems, which produced the Review of the Prince William Sound, Alaska, Risk Assessment Study (1998). Dr. Leschine earned a PhD in mathematics from the University of Pittsburgh, where he specialized in mathematical logic. He made the transition to a career in marine affairs via postdoctoral research and staff appointments at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution in Woods Hole, Massachusetts, and, briefly, at the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder, Colorado. Dr. Leschine has served as a member of the Marine Board since November 2008. Milton Levenson (NAE) is an independent consultant. He is a chemical engineer with 65 years of experience in nuclear energy and related fields. His technical experience includes work related to nuclear safety, fuel cycle, water reactors, advanced reactors, and remote control. His professional experience includes research and operations positions at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory, the Argonne National Laboratory, the Electric Power Research Institute, and Bechtel. He was elected to the National Academy of Engineering in 1976. Mr. Levenson is a fellow and past president of the American Nuclear Society, a fellow of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers, and recipient of the American Institute of Chemical Engineersâ Robert E.

Mr. Levenson has served as chairman or committee member for several National Academies studies. He received his BChE from the University of Minnesota. R. Keith Michel is President of Webb Institute, a highly ranked college offering a joint degree in naval architecture and marine engineering. Before assuming the presidency of Webb in July 2013, Mr. Michel was Chairman of the Board of the Herbert Engineering Corporation (HEC) group of companies, where he was engaged in the design of ships and related research for 40 years. The HEC group of companies consists of HEC (focusing on the design of ships and offshore structures), HES (HECâs subsidiary company located in Shanghai, China), and HEE (HECâs European subsidiary company). Mr. Michelâs expertise covers risk assessment; marine transportation studies; and conceptual, preliminary, and contract-level design, shipyard negotiations, and plan approval of commercial ships. He has been project manager for structural,
51 stability, damage stability, outflow, cargo securing, container and cargo gear testing, and marine transportation economic and risk analysis studies. He served as Technical Advisor to the U.S. delegation to the International Maritime Organization (IMO) Marine Environment Protection Committee (MEPC) 32 through MEPC 36 and as a member of the drafting group developing the IMO Guidelines for the Approval of Alternative Tanker Designs Under Regulation 13F. He developed the probability distribution functions for tankers on the basis of historical damage statistics, developed the IMO reference ships and performed the outflow analysis, and assisted in writing the guidelines. Mr. Michel served as Chairman of the IMO Bulk Liquids and Gases working group tasked with developing new marine pollution (MARPOL) regulations for hypothetical oil outflow and tank size and with acceptance of alternative designs to double-hull tankers. He developed the initial draft of the MARPOL regulations for protection of bunker tanks.
