Dr. Edward Gross is now a Principal of RMA

We are very pleased to announce that Dr. Edward Gross has become a Principal of RMA along with Donald Smith, Richard Rachiele, and John DeGeorge. Dr. Gross has worked with RMA since 2011, taking a leading role in the development and application of multi-dimensional models for hydrodynamics, particle tracking, and transport analysis. He is recognized as an expert in estuarine physics and transport processes, particularly in the San Francisco Estuary, and often collaborates with faculty and researchers at Stanford University, UC Davis, UC Berkeley, Tokyo University of Marine Science and Technology and other universities and research institutes.

Marianne Guerin Receives 2016 CWEMF Distinguished Life Membership Award

On April 11, 2016, at the California Water and Environmental Modeling Forum Annual Meeting, Marianne Guerin was presented with the Distinguished Life Membership Award.

“The California Water and Environmental Modeling Forum’s Distinguished Life Membership Award is given annually to active or past members who, through long and distinguished service, have made a major contribution to the CWEMF and to the California water and environmental modeling profession. The recipient must have been a CWEMF member for at least ten years (not necessarily in a row) and been a regular attendee at the CWEMF Steering Committee Meetings and/or Annual Meetings or have other significant contributions to the organization.”

We congratulate Marianne on receiving this much deserved award!
