... in oceanography in 1980 from Texas A&M University. His research interests include environmental monitoring; fate and effects of contaminants; environmental impacts of offshore energy exploration and exploitation; coordination of the social and physical sciences to address environmental issues; and all aspects of sustainable development of coastal margins.

... in oceanography from the University of Alaska, Fairbanks. Her research includes extensive work on biodegradation of oil in intertidal and subtidal marine sediments following the Exxon Valdez oil spill; evaluation of bioremediation as a treatment technology following the Exxon Valdez oil spill; bioremediation effectiveness in Arctic and subarctic terrestrial ecosystems; natural attentuation of contaminants in cold climates; the effect of sediments on bioavailability of petroleum hydrocarbons for microbial degradation; and microbial degradation of chlorinated and unchlorinated hydrocarbons in groundwater.

... federal government on the aquatic environmental fate and effects of heavy metals and petroleum hydrocarbons from offshore drilling and production operations, clean ballast water discharges from tankers, and from major oil spills, including the Esso Bayway crude oil spill in the Neches River, the Arthur Kill, New Jersey diesel spill, Amoco Cadiz crude oil spill in France, the Exxon Valdez crude oil spill in Alaska, the Newton Lake, Illinois, pipeline break and oil spill, the Haven oil spill off Genoa, Italy, the Trecate oil spill in rice fields north of Milan, Italy, and the Seki oil spill in the United Arab Emirates. He has been a member of three review panels of the National Research Council, the first dealing with Fate and Effects of Drilling Mud and Cuttings in the Marine Environment and the second dealing with marine oil spills.

... in electrical engineering from Cornell University in 1969. His research interests include sea ice dynamics; naturally induced stresses in sea ice sheets near grounded obstacles; theoretical analysis of artificially formed sea spray ice-freezing kinetics; and research on sea ice failure stresses.
