Biography:

Related to research: His scientific background includes an undergraduate degree in agriculture and graduate degrees in earth and environmental sciences and environmental geophysics. He has presented several times both orally and through poster sessions at the annual meeting of the American Geophysical Union (AGU) (e.g., Lampousis, and Kenyon, 2009; Lampousis et al, 2007). He is a member of several professional societies, including the Environmental and Engineering Geophysical Society (EEGS), the AGU, the Geological Society of America (GSA), the Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG), and the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM). He presently serves as a member on the ASTM subcommittee E50 and the task group responsible for developing the ASTM Standard E1527-05, Practice for Environmental Site Assessments. His research activities include monitoring of nitrate leaching on Long Island, NY, and basic electrical geophysics research on the broadband dielectric properties of biofuels (e.g., ethanol).

Related to education: He teaching experience includes courses in geology, geomorphology, environmental science, meteorology, and geography. Upon his graduation, he developed graduate and undergraduate courses in Phase I and Phase II environmental site assessments for the Department of Earth & Atmospheric Sciences (EAS) of City College of New York (CCNY) of the City University of New York (CUNY) and for the Department of Geography of Hunter College, CUNY. Most recently, these courses were noted by ASTM and EPA, resulting in close collaborations with these organizations in the areas of curriculum development and internship opportunities (e.g., article in the January/February 2012 issue of ASTM’s “Standardization News”).

Related to agricultural extension: Since 2009 he has produced and hosted a biweekly radio program that covers technology-transfer and innovation topics. It is broadcast by WNYE Cosmos 91.5 FM. He has established strong collaborations with personnel at Cornell University’s Agricultural Stewardship Program in Suffolk County, Long Island, NY, and jointly performed research within the facilities of Cornell University’s Horticultural Research and Extension Center (LIHREC) in Riverhead, NY.

Courses:

ENVIRONMENTAL SITE ASSESSMENTS (Undergraduate-EAS 31500)
The lecture component of this course will present in detail the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) standards related to Environmental Site Assessments, and the recently adopted and/or anticipated amendments. Special topics include Light Non-Aqueous Phase Liquids (LNAPL) remediation (mechanical extraction, chemical treatment in situ, biostimulation), and retail gas station raze and rebuild work in NYC’s five boroughs. The laboratory component will cover mapping science topics, including topographic and geologic maps, aerial photograph interpretation using a stereoscope, fire insurance maps, and an introduction to GIS. Laboratory topics also include a full review of minerals and rocks (igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic) utilizing the City College geological specimen collections. It will also include hazardous materials basic training as designated by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). Part of the laboratory time will be devoted to in-class report writing and field-trips to real properties in New York.

EARTH SYSTEMS SCIENCES (Undergraduate Lab-EAS 10600)
A systematic global view of the features, processes, and underlying scientific concepts of the earth, atmosphere, and oceans, emphasizing environmental applications
Phase II Environmental Site Assessments

Course Background

To stay abreast of employers’ needs and generate opportunities for CCNY’s aspiring environmental professionals, the Department of Earth & Atmospheric Sciences is developing strong collaborations with key industry stakeholders.  These include the CCNY alumni network within the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (Region 2); the ASTM Committee E50 on Environmental Assessment, Risk Management and Corrective Action; and the company Environmental Data Resources of Milford, Connecticut, a leading US provider of environmental risk information.

Learning Objectives

Provide CCNY students a competitive edge by fitting them with the skills their industry is looking for, sparing employers much expensive and time-consuming on-the-job training.  The courses also appeal to non-matriculated students, who are already in the field and find they lack adequate preparation. Goal

Supporting Learning Objectives

  • Learn how to maximize investigation project effectiveness
  • Going beyond site assessment with existing resources
  • Define technical and business practices to streamline environmental investigation and cleanup
  • Improve confidence in project and site decision-making and manage risk more effectively
  • Achieve cleanup goals faster and at less cost
