Mr. De Graff’s Resumé
During most of his 36 years in the US Forest Service, Jerome (Jerry) De Graff served in positionsdesignated as being either an environmental or engineering geologist on National Forests in Utah and California. In those capacities, he collected and interpreted geologic information needed for sustainable development, multiple-use management of natural resources, and emergency response. Jerry acted as the in-house geologist providing information about geomorphic processes, groundwater conditions, and other
relevant geologic information. During his last 6 years, he was a Forest Service On-Scene Coordinator for Superfund-type issues and responses at abandoned mines and other Forest Service sites in California. Since retiring from government service in February 2014, Jerry continues his geology career teaching graduate courses for the Department of Earth & Environmental Science at California State University-Fresno, acting in editorial and related capacities for various professional journals, and being active in professional organizations.
Effective Monitoring for Environmental and Engineering Geology Projects.
Monitoring is often part of environmental or engineering geology projects. Monitoring of surface crack development over an active coal mine, herbicide movement in groundwater, and long-term temperature and pH trends in an areas of hot springs illustrate how this activity can develop information important to project objectives. The presentation will also explore how to ensure the effectiveness of monitoring efforts.
