Jerald L. Schnoor, UI Foundation Distinguished Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering and co‑director of our Center for Global and Regional Environmental Research, joined our faculty in 1977. He holds a joint appointment in the Department of Preventive Medicine and Environmental Health of the College of Medicine. A native of Davenport, Iowa, Schnoor earned his B.S. in chemical engineering from Iowa State University in 1972 and went on to the University of Texas at Austin for an M.S. in Environmental Health Engineering (1974) and a Ph.D. in Civil Engineering (1975), followed by a 1976 NSF postdoctoral fellowship at Manhattan College in the Bronx. During his tenure at Iowa, Professor Schnoor has served as visiting professor at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (1982, 1988, 1994) and as National Academy of Sciences Exchange Scientist to Czechoslovakia (1991). Among his numerous honors and activities are the 1985 Walter L. Huber Research Prize from the American Society of Civil Engineers, election as diplomate of the American Academy of Environmental Engineers in 1990, an Iowa Regents' Award for Faculty Excellence in 1993, and service as president of the Faculty Senate in 1993‑94. In addition to more than 100 scientific papers, Professor Schnoor is author of the soon-to-be published book, Environmental Modeling, associate editor of Environmental Science and Technology, andco‑editor of a series of texts and monographs on environmental quality. He has directed a number of water quality modeling and toxic substance research projects in this country and abroad, focusing on such problems as dissolved oxygen and eutrophication, acid deposition, toxic chemical transport, pesticide pollution, and global atmospheric trace gases. His current research interests include surface water and groundwater quality modeling, exposure assessments, and remediation of hazardous substances.
