 previous story | next story

Gene Shinn was selected as a 1999 National EPA Distinguished Lecturer and presented a talk to EPA Region 4 on July 28, in Atlanta, GA. The EPA's Scientific and Technical Careers Advisory Committee selected Gene as one of four Regional Distinguished Lecturers in the U.S. His talk, "Problems in Paradise" is a two-part story. Part one concerns sewage and groundwater work by the SPFC in the Florida Keys (partially funded by EPA). Part two concerns African dust and was presented with the hope of obtaining some EPA funding for research on the human and environmental effects of African dust in the U.S.
