Vermont EPSCoR member Andrew Schroth, PhD was appointed to the Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) of the Lake Champlain Basin Program (LCBP) on December 14, 2016.
As a member of the TAC, Dr. Schroth’s role includes presenting the Basin Program Steering Committee with technical information to be used in decision making, advising on emerging management issues, overseeing and facilitating technical aspects of implementation projects, and interpreting technical information such as monitoring program results to help determine the success or redirection of projects.
“I am pleased at the Lake Champlain Steering Committee’s recent appointment of Dr. Schroth to the LCBP Technical Advisory Committee,” said LCBP Executive Director Eric Howe. “Andrew will bring a welcome perspective to the LCBP’s science-based committee with regards to in-lake and tributary monitoring projects, particularly for cutting-edge monitoring approaches to help us solve management problems associated with nutrient loading to and in Lake Champlain.”
A professor at the University of Vermont (UVM) since 2012, Dr. Schroth’s research focuses on nutrient and algal bloom dynamics within the Lake Champlain Basin.
