• Mike´s specialty is designing and conducting studies to assess the effects of transportation projects on ambient air quality and public health.|
• Before accepting a position with the Planning and Environment Team of the FHWA Midwestern Resource Center, he worked as an air quality consultant.
• During his career, Mike has consulted for several State Departments of Transportation including Georgia, Tennessee, Virginia, North Carolina, and South Carolina.
• He has performed numerous air quality impact assessments to satisfy the requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act.
• These assessments were for major projects such as a 12-lane freeway in Atlanta; a multi-modal
transportation facility in Memphis; and the planned relocation of railways in Augusta.
• He has also worked on a variety of ambient air and meteorological monitoring investigations, including urban-scale background carbon monoxide and lead levels in Atlanta; transport ozone concentrations in Augusta;
• Emergency response to hazardous chemical spills near train derailments in Louisiana, Texas, and Arkansas.
• Mike has developed computer models for predicting concentrations near signalized highway intersections; as well as, for predicting occurrences of fog on highways near large industrial sources of water vapor.
• He has also developed computer models for predicting pollutant concentrations from industrial sources in the cavity region of a building wake due to plume downwash; in urban complex terrain; and for conditions of long-range plume
• Mike has conducted research on the accuracy and precision of air dispersion models used nationally to predict concentrations near highways and industrial sources.
• He has developed and taught workshops and graduate level courses on air dispersion modeling.
• Articles authored by Mike have appeared in several professional journals including the Transportation Research Record and Atmospheric Environment.
• He co-authored two chapters in the Environmental Protection Agency´s 1979 update of Air Quality Criteria for Carbon Monoxide.
