EPA Recognizes Work of B.T. Thomas
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency awarded Robert (B.T.) Thomas (one of five team members) a 2007 Level I Scientific and Technological Achievement Award for collaborative research and co-authorship of the research paper, "Groundwater N Speciation and Redox Control of Organic N Mineralization by O2 Reduction to H2O2."
Prior to joining the CH2M HILL, Thomas was a federal post-doctorial associate at EPA's Ecosystem Research Division in Athens, Ga., where he coordinated the lab and field nutrients research program. His main research focus was on the fate and transport of nitrogen compounds in natural systems.
The Level I award is the highest STAA given to researchers who have accomplished an exceptionally high-quality research or technological effort and is among the most prestigious of EPA scientific award programs. Thomas is now a geochemist with the firm's Atlanta office.
