Presentation Overview:

We live in an age awash in environmental data and computing power, yet many water quality models in common use were written when chemical contaminant data were scarce and run times limiting. This talk explores the idea that current water quality models do not fully exploit the information and computing revolutions, and argues that modeling that was once fantasy is now possible. Joel Baker Ph.D. is the Science Director of the Center for Urban Waters in Tacoma. His research interests center around the transport of organic contaminants in the environment. He was a lead author on a scientific review of PCBs in the Hudson River and a contributing author to the Pew Oceans Commission Report on Marine Pollutants in the United States. In 2010 he was awarded the Conservation Research Award by the Seattle Aquarium.
